A few days ago I noted that, from a distance, some newly installed culverts looked like turkeys. I went and checked them out today and, as you can see, they are not turkeys. They are not, as I also suggested, made of metal. They are full on plastic.
The trees around here are not leafing out in all their spring glory. This tree at the end of our driveway has been busting green across the blue sky. The orioles seem to like this one in particular.
It rained like stink last night and yesterday afternoon. We drove home from Burlington My great-grandmother in-law’s 90th birthday celebration) in the rain to meet our babysitter. The children were asleep, lulled by the drops tickling the windows. This morning the fields around and about were flooded. The beavers and the geese are loving that.
The river was full this morning as well–more than your usual CFS flowing under the bridge. Our friend Kathy came for the night but she had to leave before we took this walk. She arrived just before 2:30 AM from a late flight to the Burlington airport. She left about 10:30. Only and eight hour visit and most of that asleep. I trust she enjoyed the fine spring day with her daughter when she got home to the Upper Valley. It would be hard not to enjoy this day. It was full on spring and, I am pretty sure this is true everywhere, was plain old beautiful.
