In Montana you can gauge the seasons by the animals. The other day I went for a drive with my hubby and we saw probably some 200 deer in a variety of fields just grazing and enjoying the fading light of evening.
Then of course there's the craziness of our weather. Do you know how you can tell it's spring in Montana? The snow feels warmer.
Although I'm not sure my kitty Safari agrees.
Another sure sign that it's spring - the grizzly bears have been spotted coming out of hibernation. Of course that goes hand in hand with seeing the geese flying back into town, seeing bluebirds and robins, and of course...gophers.
We have these little gopher guys all over the place.
A pasttime for the kids up here is gopher shooting. They are a pest and a destructive terror at times, but when you see them after a long winter - you know it's spring.
Yesterday, I hit my first gopher of the season with the car. It was like a formal announcement. SPRING IS HERE!
So from my home to yours, here is a blessing for spring.
May the Lord bless and keep you in His care.
May your days be rosey and fair.
May your road be easy no matter how far,
and May the gophers watch out for your car.
God Bless You!
