Fowl in Foul Weather

Grass coming up and rain coming down. Now, if we only had a few quail to round out the flock.

Easter on the Hill

We spent a couple of days at the mouth of Canal Canyon hiding eggs and traveling the hills tracking the regression of this year's snow.
Easter lunch took more time than we anticipated, as is not unusual with eleven people competing for time and space at a cabin in the hills, but the light and clouds cooperated just enough to warm the table.
Hope your easter season brought hope of plenty and fertile imagination.

It's good to see and notice.
The light lasts longer, of course, and with the warmth of day projecting further into the twilight, I find myself outside more and longer. I end up further from home on walks and rides, and with a little extra imagination, life is extended more in the diction of dreams.

Snow, Again

It didn't start out too well, but after work and a bit of time with those two, a ride out of town as the sun descended was nothing short of magical for the heart and mind.
