It must be well into spring at this point. The spring peepers have gone from a gentle melody to a full-blown choir. Then this morning while out driving I saw my first woodchuck of the season; his plumply furry little body galumphing across a meadow. Lots of good eating I guess. They're so cute.

The grasses are definitely growing...time to start mowing.

And lots of weeding coming up. The deer fence has come down so now we'll need to start spraying Bobbex on the plants to try to protect them from invasion. Every year at this time I start wondering why we can't train deer, rabbits and woodchucks to eat the weeds instead of the flowers.
