A few of my favorite spring things..

A few of my favorite spring things include…

…when the cranes fly over head. Usually I hear them long before I see them. I love hearing there distinctive call and it’s even more exciting when I see them too!

…watching pairs of hawks riding the thermals. It can be very mesmerizing to watch them glide in cirlces in the air.

…smoke on the horizon. When I see the smoke I know other people are out burning their prairies. It make us wonder if this is the year we should burn our prairie again. It has been a couple of years since we last burned. One of these years we will burn the prairie again.

I got to enjoy all of these today… now all that is left is to keep vigil for the pasque flowers to come up.
