Stick in the Mud(season)

Heifer on the loose!
Today is the first day of spring. But that's sort of a tease. In fact, here in Vermont this time of year is officially known as Mudseason, that fateful period of purgatory between winter and spring. The bulbs have broken through, but the snow is not over yet. And in between, it's muddy enough to lose a shoe if you aren't careful.

There's something about this time of year that sets me off-kilter. Snowshoeing is over, but it's too soon to break ground in the garden. The calendar says spring, but the weather disagrees. In-between the remaining snow drifts, the yard has digressed into a giant mud puddle. Everything is murky, including my mood.

Aw, hoping the murk clears up soon! Spring is slow to settle in, but once she's here it's not long at all until summer sunshine, garden bounty and late night cook-outs. Hang in there!

We could use some of your snow! We are in a really terrible drought. Love the cow on snow.
