The picture at the top of the page was taken in the spring a few years ago. That is the view from my back deck, a breathtaking expanse of the grasslands to the west. The rainbow was a wonderful bonus that day, and had actually been a lot more spectacular earlier… which sent me fumbling to put the batteries in my camera. One of these days, I’ll buy a better camera!
Today, of course, that view is very different. It snowed all day yesterday.
But spring is coming! The wild rabbits are doing their mating dance, and there will be lots and lots of baby rabbits in another month or so. The deer have all dropped their fawns by now, carefully hidden until they get a bit stronger, and I look forward to seeing them romp and run over the new grass. The antelope fawns will drop in April and May, but they are quite shy and I don’t expect to see many of them before full summer.
Counting the days…
