Spring rain, earthquake & roses (April 10)

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on April 17, 2008

I’ve been so busy with work and now I’ve got the flu; so haven’t had time to post this past week. My first spring roses (red and yellow) bloomed yesterday, but it’s been too rainy to get a photo. Earlier this week we had an earthquake in Texas; it was measured as 3.7 and a little over 150 miles away, so we didn’t feel anything. Now, tomorrow the weather from here to Chicago is supposed to be the worst day, according to the Weather Channel, for storms, tornados, hail and winds to errupt. Spring is definitely here with a vengance. Our buck rabbit escaped (or got taken) this past weekend and tonite I got two watch two wild rabbits cavorting in the yard. They were running around and jumping straight up, kicking their feet, and running some more. It was hilarious to watch, but I suspect they or their buddies may be the cause of our little missing rabbit. He just couldn’t resist. The hummingbirds are going crazy trying to defend the different feeders, so if you walk through my front yard sometimes you have to duck as you hear a loud ZOOM past your head. My koi pond is active and the fish are practically leaping out, perhaps to get a bite of the swarm of gallinippers that are hanging around our house. Spring is full of life and activity and I love it.
