Signs that Spring is here!

Often in life, especially growing up, we hear sayings that we might never experience or believe. Raised in the desert the "April Showers bring May flowers" was one of those sayings for me. We really didn't get much spring rain. Wind, yes! Rain no. (Side note, the annual rainfall in Las Vegas is only 4 inches, that's on a good year.)

Living somewhere now that that saying applies is awesome. Spring is here in a Wyoming sort of way. There are signs everywhere that it has arrived.

For example, the babies are starting to show up everywhere.

Baby cows...

baby chickens...

Baby flowers.... This one was really little. They just popped up out in the yard one day. Lloyd found them and had me come and look. They were white, yellow and purple. Not sure what they are. They didn't really look like anything I know a name for.

More babies to come also. The deer should have their fawns in late May, early June. The wild turkeys are out strutting their stuff, so it shouldn't be to long for them either. Miss M, one of our barn (snicker-snicker) cat's looks suspiciously prego already. And the list goes on. I can't wait to see what else we discover!

The garden is taking shape. Just another month or so and I can plant! Yay! So excited. First the deer fence has to go up around it though. I have it all planned on the computer. All my seeds and such are in (with the exception of my berry bushes). Summer is going to be a very busy time!

And of course the requisite Spring snow storm followed by a beautiful day that melts it all away!

Crazy huh? I'm told it can happen really anytime if conditions are right. But usually it stops snowing in May. At least when it snows in the spring, it melts right away and just lovely moisture is left in the ground.

It will be so fun to share the journey of my first spring and summer in the country with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I plan too!
