Mud season

Maine’s fifth season is here, mud season.  Melting snow and frozen ground create mud, and lots of it.  Mud, along with March winds, maple taps and red winged blackbirds, is a harbinger of spring here at Henbogle.  Here are some glimpses of muddy, marvelous spring.


Snow is melting in the sunny backyard.  The above photo was taken Sunday morning; the below photo this afternoon.  There is some progress evident.

Now, time to plant a few broccoli and cauliflower seeds.

    Oh joy mud season. Here in southern New England it isn’t quite as bad, but it really depends upon how much rain we get during. So far not much, but wait until tomorrow. My most hated northern New England season is black fly season. That would keep me indoors during the spring.

      Peepers! Spring is there where you are. I’ve been hearing the red-wing blackbirds, and lots of other birds, but no peepers yet. Soon I hope.
