Well it is better than the white report, since we have nothing green it is the brown report.
It is what it is. April in Minnesota can be anything from near zero to 80. Back in 1977 it was 80 degrees and we all thought we would die from the heat. I hosted a birthday party for a whole bunch of little girls in sundresses that year.
We are dry this year, the little bit of snow we got the other day is long gone…didn’t even make mud. I am sure the annual spring fires will start any day.
Spring could arrive any day now. The Juncos have been visiting and along with them they brought a few Gold Finches and one lonely Purple Finch. The Finches are scarfing down the Niger Thistle Seed. Junco’s or Snowbirds are usually ground feeders.. we saw a few in the feeders today, they must have been really hungry!
Odda The Bernese Mountain Dog from down the road visited again yesterday, her arthritis is worse she had a real hard time jumping in the car. She loves Chance’s homemade pumpkin treats. She wasn’t real keen on going home…she must like us.
