You know when you shake a bottle of soda pop and you can feel the pressure on the can or bottle before you open it? That is that feeling right before the glories of spring explode.
The chickens start uping production of eggs, babies are born, and gardens are planted or at least gotten ready to be.
I love this feeling....
Soon it will be sweltering hot and we will be miserable from our hot humid, buggy, summer. But that also holds it own tantilizing mysteries that hold us captive.Long summer swims in a local lake, fishing at dusk, the sun beating down on our hat covered heads as we mow, the early morning walks in the cool morning before the heat settles in, chickens taking dust baths in the sunlight, the breeze thru the barn with the front and back doors open, gardening in the early morning or in the evening, cool salads, and ice cream making.
That is why winter seems so long I think so that we fall in love all over again year after year with the creations around us popping up and showering us with their wonders.
