Now this is more like it!

The Hermit called me at work to tell me our ill-tempered, pessimistic thermometer was finally reading 40 degrees!

I spent my afternoon break standing with my back against a south facing wall, soaking up the sun, and listening to the dripping of melt water from the eaves and the rush of breeze through a small grove of jack pines.

Let the mud season begin!

I'm with you! Bring on the mud--and the smell of thawing soil! Ain't life grand? There is nothing that can bring you down when you KNOW Spring is coming...

My dogs love mud season! It must feel good squishing between their toes. It's worth having to go through it though knowing that spring has finally arrived!

Denise and RuthieJ- I'm so glad you know the spirit of Mud Season! It just makes me happy! Maybe we should start an official recognition of it... Mud Moon, I can see it now...
