Spring is Springing
I think it’s great how signs of the coming new seasons arrive often at the mid-point of the existing season. Like sometimes there will be a really hot dry day in May and it will remind you of summer. There will be a colder gloomier day in August that will remind you of autumn. There will be a dusting of snow in November that reminds you of winter.
Here we are now at the later part of January and the daffodil bulbs have sprouted, but more than that the horses have started shedding. You don’t notice it so much with a black horse, but a paint with a lot of white hair you see a dusting of white hair on the ground where she stands most frequently. It’s nearly time to remove the horse blankets and find the curry combs and dedicate all the sluff and skirf to the ground where the birds can collect it for their spring nests.
Spring is nearly here, folks.
