SPRING IS IN THE AIR

SPRING IS IN THE AIR...

Spring is a vibrant, swift-winged revelation that reminds us how wonderful and beautiful life can be on the farm.

This morning we looked up to see a barn swallow winging her way neatly across the pasture with a blade of grass clipped in her beak.

We’ve waited all year for her to arrive, and watched as she came swooping in, followed by her friends in two’s, then threes. All told, five flew in today weary from their travels….

It’s one of the first signs of spring in the valley.

Today, we welcomed back five barn swallows….  tomorrow, the other 500 arrive.
