Warming up

It may not look like it, with the ground all white with snow still, but this week the weather has started to feel more spring-like. I didn't need a hat, scarf, or gloves this afternoon when I took the dog for his walk and the snow was distinctly squishy underfoot instead of the crispy surface of recent weeks.

It makes walking in it more of an effort, though...

On Tuesday the last of the snow on the barn roof gradually melted off, dangling some lethal-looking icicles precariously over the edge.

And after a month of confinement, the hens are impatient to get back out into the orchard. Maybe enough of the snow will have gone by the weekend to make that possible...
