A week has passed since Snow-Gauge Clif made his first appearance of the year, and what a long week it has been. The news about the coronavirus changes daily. As we watch the news, we wait in apprehension, hoping that family and friends, near and far, stay safe and well.
But let us turn our attention back to Snow-Gauge Clif. The snow is melting at an astonishing clip. Here is Snow-Gauge Clif in the front yard.
And here he is in the backyard.
So much snow has melted that a couple of days ago, I did my yearly chore of picking up branches and sticks in the backyard. And, no, that little buddy didn’t help me.
Winter storms always blow sticks and branches down, and believe it or not, I actually enjoy this chore that tells me, “Spring is coming, spring is coming.” Beside me, a beautiful ghost dog barks and leaps as I throw the sticks over the fence into the woods.
After cleaning the yard of sticks, I grabbed my wee camera and looked for signs of spring. I was not disappointed.
Somehow, this green looks even better this spring than it normally does.
