Last week I was on my knees outside enlarging the homemade strawberry frames. In the middle of my concentration I heard the faint 'Qua' sounds of a Snowbird flock flying super high. I quit my job and started searching the sky. A V flock and Line flock were up there going so fast to the west. The sunlight was flashing off their white wings. Just 'WOW.' In the line flock, there were 7 black spots scattered among the white. I puzzled then decided they were young birds just coasting along. I won't even look in a book to see if there are black swans.... I like my 'truth' better. With a light heart the strawberry frames got bolted together. I can bring in some dirt from the old chicken yard after the snow goes away.
I tromped up the hill into the woods to the '3 pines' spot that I had started de-brushing last Fall. It looks pretty good. I can partly mow it and see what happen when the May flowers come out!!
