First Day of Spring

The first day of Spring.  A magnificent day.  And a glorious sight in the vineyard – Arnulfo has completed pruning!  Very satisfying to look over acres of vines that are tidily contained, while showing their pent-up energy in the form of the buds pushing out all over.  The promise of things to come.  Spring is evident too in the pear tree that is a riot of flowers (yumm…pear sauce in August), small buds on the bare-root apple trees we planted at the New Year, lambs gamboling about the barnyard, weeding to be done in the raised vegetable beds, two baby owlets in the owl box in the upper barn – well, it’s everywhere here on the ranch.
