The wind is raw, it looks like it could be warm outside but it is not. Chance hates the wind and thinks right under my feet is a safe spot…not so much.
I still have my long parka out and it comes in real handy to walk Chance in the hour before daylight when he thinks he needs to check out every tree in the entire yard.
The farmers are out working in the fields, dust hangs in the air.
The brush cutters came along and took down more trees under the power line. I hope they are done now. They took down some trees that would have taken 30 plus years to even get close to the power line….some were hazard trees and had to go like the Popple (Aspen). They also took out a fair number of Chokecherry and Pin Cherry Bushes, which were never going to be a problem…and some birds will miss those bushes.
One of the roads we travel had a small shrub/tree where a Meadolark has hung out singing for years… and now it’s singing perch is gone.
The rebuilding of the grocery store in Osage seems to be at a stand still. I thought he hoped to open May 1st, but I don’t think that will be happening.
The snow early yesterday morning brought the Juncos back to our yard.
I am looking forward to the day when we can sit out on the patio and watch the birds and not freeze to death.
Yard art in Jen’s yard last summer when it was warm.
