UP in the Garden, UP in the Prairie, UP in the Lake

It’s the end of March and the weather has been down (a horrible cold blustery day last Sunday, March 29) and UP (today is 60 and sunny). I heard a radio report  that ships won’t be able to get to Burns Harbor, IN for another two weeks because the Lakes are still too frozen. But out in the the gardens, it’s fun to notice hints of color popping UP thru the soil. And yesterday was, “Drop Everything Day! It’s perfect for the prairie!” so off we went to the farm to be pyromaniacs. Fire it UP! And then on the way home, two geese in Redwing Slough in Antioch gave me a great big chuckle…Bottoms UP!

    Happy Easter to you too Rom. I am imagining taking a walk with you up there in Richmond right now. You are definitely ahead of us. Tons of robins out there now. Had 6-7 deer- mother and fawns come through yard today.. they must be hungry. I have a favorite cardinal who comes and sits outside my kitchen window every day around 3:00. Beautiful red with black bandit like mask sillouhetting his eyes. Like Christ, I am feeling risen..in a new metomorphic form. Wishing you, John, Danielle and Leah a joyful weekend. Love, Martha
