The weather forecast calls for rain the rest of the week. This gives me time to recount what's been happening in my backyard this Spring.
Ducks: Our pond was visited by three couples early this spring. Not sure what breed, but the males were a brilliant white.
Apple blossoms: The trees didn't burst into bloom all at the same time like they do some years. But the hard frost we got in early May came after the blossoms were almost gone. Hopefully this means there will be plenty of apples for cider this fall.
Grass: Mowing season has begun. Several years ago I did a search on itunes for John Deere tractor songs. You'd be amazed just how many of them there are! One of the artists I discovered is a folk singer Chris Williamson and she sings a song about a woman riding on her John Deere.
