What a beautiful day. Sunny here in the sub alpine, extremely warm in the grasslands, and very sunny and 16 degrees in town. You could say too warm. I hate to complain.
I saw three red-wing blackbirds in the marsh just before the flats. I took a walk with the dogs on the river dike and I could hear the meadowlark. Too soon, too soon.
These are last years and two years ago pictures: meadowlark from the end of March and blackbird from May.
This is climate change. This changes everything. Time for a LEAP!
The year’s at the spring
And day’s at the morn;
Morning’s at seven;
The hillside’s dew-pearled;
The lark’s on the wing;
The snail’s on the thorn:
God’s in His heaven—
All’s right with the world!
We hiked in the grasslands this weekend. We went from bare to mega snow. We could hear the lark but not see him. Spring will be soon.
