Yesterday's adventures had me on a walk around the farmette. Down the steep hillside to the springs that flow freely.
I was on a quest for fresh air and sunshine, both of which I found in abundance.
A certain nosy dog could not resist the fresh water available, though I did not partake.
I did spy some green and it wasn't just the plentiful moss. The March Lilies, as they are commonly known in Smalltownland, are already in bloom. A bit early, but always nice to see.
Closer to our ancient farmhouse I spied the tiniest of buds on the pear trees.
My calendar tells me that spring is officially set for March the 20th. However, it looks like Mother Nature has a bit of a head start.
