Spring is starting to show itself now after a slow start. There are crocuses on the hills, robins singing in the trees, and the call of a flicker in the air. Two deer have taken to grazing near the house. The one in this picture was grazing in near the dogs before 7 in the morning one day, so I decided to grab my camera.
The ice in the lake is getting softer and we are finished with travelling on it for this season. Some years the ice is already out on the lake by now, but because of the cool spring, it will probably be closer to the end of the month this year.
Next trip across the lake will be by boat.
