Spring in January

springinjanuarya

Ha! Hardly. It’s still cold, but spring is just around the corner, the daffodils pushing out of the frozen soil are counting on it. The deep freeze that started on New Year’s Eve still has the ground as hard as cement, but that isn’t holding back the daffodil shoots. A sunny day with above freezing temperatures in the afternoon draws Hazel and the other hens all the way around the pond to look for good things to eat in the sunny brush. After tonight, freezing temperatures will be a thing of the past for a spell. That should thaw the frozen soil and bring things to life.
