Mud Season

Winter is done. It may snow again, it might, but the back of the cold has been broken.

You know the joke about seasons around here? We have: early winter, winter, mud season, and road repair.

I love mud season!

Here are some pictures.

Here is Hazel at the park

Everything is melting and dripping, and the ground is not frozen all the way hard, but hard enough that the water can't soak in. That is why mud! Ice and mud together for a while, then comes shoots and worms. Just now the worms are still down deep, safe bow the frozen zone. I wonder where the horseshoe crabs go? We wanted to go to their beach today, but it was swan bath day, so we did not approach!
