Spring is sprung, the grass is ris.
I wonders where the birdies is.
They say the birds is on the wing.
Ain’t that absurd?
I always thought the wing was on the bird.
Spring has arrived! We took this picture of almond blossom a couple of weeks ago. The trees looked beautiful. Yesterday when we got up, the wind had blown most of the blossom off the trees. It looked a bit like snow on the ground, but it isn’t nearly as much fun as real snow!
Lots of things are starting to grow. Some of the deciduous trees are beginning to look green again. The bipeds keep checking the buds on the wisteria to see how soon they think it will flower. The lizards are scurrying about in the middle of the day, when it’s warm. The little birds are hopping about picking up white hair to line their nests. I like to see them making use of my hair, there’s always some in the grass if you look closely.
I love being brushed because it is undivided attention from a biped. I need lots of brushing in the Spring because I shed my undercoat. (Read more about my coat – From Hair to Eternity) They sometimes take it in turns to brush me because they say it makes their arms ache – I love it!
The bipeds spend more time outside doing things like gardening, I enjoy being outside with them. When I think they’ve worked hard enough, I encourage them to take a break and play with me. Outside games are a lot more fun than games indoors!
The cats are happy because it’s warm enough for them to sunbathe on the balcony some days. They love it when it gets warm enough to leave the door to the balcony open all day.
The snow line gradually gets higher up the mountains. This means more paths are available to walk and there will still be snow in shady patches. On walks, the bipeds keep getting distracted by things like flowers, so I get extra sniffing time! The mountain streams are flowing with melted snow – very refreshing! The highest mountains still have white peaks, so the views are breathtaking.
We generally take longer walks in the Spring, when the weather is good. We take the walks we won’t be able to do when it gets too hot to go out in the middle of the day in the summer. Sometimes we’re lucky and see something unusual like wild goats. Later in the Spring, or early summer, we may see really young wild boar. They look really cute when they still have striped coats!
Everyone in our household loves the Spring for lots of reasons! Do you like the Spring?
See you next Wednesday!
