Yes, it was very cold last night but two days ago, after the warm rain, the lawn was noticeably greener! Above is a worm's view! Tucker and I took a morning walk into the back field to check out the activity. I really didn't see too many birds but along with the greener grass comes the peepers. The EM heard them just the other night so I had to check out the vernal pool which is home to many of them this time of year. This puddle/pool will be here until May or so and then the field takes back over and there is little reminder of the thriving ecosystem in the vernal pool. While I enjoy looking at it, Tucker, water dog that he is, had to splash around and check it out from knee depth. He really can't pass up water! Spring light has its' own unique glow. Having grown up with four distinct seasons I know I would miss them if I moved to the tropics. I can't help wishing that winter was shorter and spring, late spring that is, longer. What about you? How do you feel about the change in seasons and which would you shorten or lengthen?
