At least the farmers are finally able to get into the fields this week.
Last night's walk was a treat, long underwear and all. The numbers of geese passing over still leave me awed; how can there possibly be so many, and all flying through my part of Saskatchewan? Right over my house? It's incredible. And I never, ever get "oh big deal" about it. I am thrilled to the bone. Even from inside the house I can watch them, hear them ... and feel very, very grateful to be here.
Between the frogs' constant garbling and the other birds doing their courtship and mating songs, it's a noisefest. A beautiful, dazzling noisefest.


  1. With the warmer weather here I've finally gotten to sleep with open windows, there's a big party around 4am, the twittering is very loud. Starting to feel like Spring.

    1. Oh, lovely! I'm looking forward to being able to leave a window cracked open at night. Or even in the daytime!

  2. yes, the birds are dancing and singing their hearts out here too SJG - and what a joy to this heart :)

    I can hardly wait to open my windows too.
