Everything is moving and breathing and having their being right now. Hawks are bountiful feasting on the massive amount of caterpillars. I spotted this amazing nest the other day; scared the hawk when I got close enough to take the photo, but I watched her come back. Trees are deciding maybe it’s safe to leaf out and flower. The cherry blossoms are sweet petite white flowers like little dollops of snow on the ends of the red branches. Chokecherries will be prolific again, which is good as the store of jelly is getting low. One of the apple trees has four or five blooms for the first time in the four years we’ve had those. The Earth is warming up and the roots are responding. And, if you wonder whether or not you like butter, the dandelions are plentiful enough to test yourself several times a day! The sunrise inspires me every day- I hope it does you too.
