Summer has arrived; The cycle continues

The ponds in front of the house are now filled with tons of baby frogs

where there used to be only tadpoles. The yard is filled with baby birds hopping and flying all over the place as their frantic parents try to keep them fed now that they are out of the nest. Even the lambs born this winter are almost as big as their mothers and looking fat and happy!

This time of year is also when we get some surprises. The potatoes we planted too late came up anyway, and they are growing incredibly fast! The prairie nursery that showed no signs of life now has 6-inch tall grasses poking up. And the leeks we planted in the garden (half of which I was sure were going to die) are growing so well that even the weeds can’t compete! Now all we have to do is let the growing things work their magic!
