Spring Has Sprung

No matter what the calendar says, spring has already sprung in north Texas. The foals are beginning to show up at the horse ranches—a sure sign. And, yesterday morning when I drove out to pick up milk from the dairy, lots of new black-and-white Holstein calves had arrived since my last visit. At one farm I also saw twin goat kids about the size of small dogs. So cute! Most of the trees and shrubs, still shocked by the polar vortex suffered a few weeks ago, seem hesitant to show some green as yet. Who can blame them after what they’ve been through. Many of their neighbors, including some shrubs around my house, didn’t survive the below-zero temperatures. But the cold is gone and spring, with its daffodils and new life, gives us hope for the year. At this one-year anniversary of the official start of the pandemic, God knew we needed that.

  1. Amen Sheila. We had a tease of spring that led to snow; 18 this morning, so, for us it’s a bit yet.
