A few signs that spring is FINALLY coming to our neck of the woods:
Lake Superior is MOSTLY free of ice: I took this video at the beginning of the month. The water is moving again, a big difference from our skating adventures of just a couple months ago. The "dark eyelid of doom" is just my camera showing it's age: the lens flappy things (technical term, y'know) don't always open all the way anymore.
The largest GREEN thing in our yard so far: Rhubarb. The cage is to prevent complete destruction by chicken; they love the stuff. I don't think it's good for them, so spend most of the summer fretting about them picking at the enormous plant that will rise from these sprouts.
I've heard mixed reports about the nutritional benefit of Rhubarb, but it's definitely a prolific "fruit" in this part of the country. Perennial dessert source: gotta love it.
But the chickens are finding a bit of approved greenery: grass! Peck snap, peck snap!
Maybe more movies soon...
