Well, Cab, our beautiful, docile Spanish rooster, is gone. No sign of illness...then one night he seemed to have a small case of the sniffles. Within 24 hours he was dead.
It has finally started to warm up. Thank goodness!
I can look forward to Spring. I have missed Spring so much the past few years.
We didn't really have Spring in El Paso...mainly because we never had Winter. Oh, maybe a few weeks of colder temperatures, but not what I consider a real Winter.
I want to watch the process of Winter loosening it's grip and Spring embracing the countryside.
I want to watch the river thaw and fat buds on the trees unfurl into small green leaves.
I want to smell Spring. The loamy soil thawing, soft Spring rain, the woods greening up.
It has been way too long.
Hoping everyone out there is looking forward to Spring as well!
