much of the snow has melted, and there is a clear path [albeit muddy] up coyote hill to the garden plot. brussel sprouts and cabbages and jalapeños have sprouted in trays under the basement grow light. the animals can now run freely around the yard and track hardly any mud into the house. break up is just about finished and soon i shall scour the forest and hillside for wee violets and other favourite wildflowers.
it’s a good life.
