Mud is Back!

Groundhog Day has long passed and Punxsutawney Phil saw his own shadow which means that winter should linger for another month from today. But, if the signs on Bentley Farm mean anything, spring is coming soon! My window is open this holiday morning as I catch up on correspondence and clean and organize some long neglected piles, and I can't help but notice that the breeze through the window smells like spring! The sun is shining, the grass that has been buried under snow for the last five weeks is visible again, mud has replaced the icy skating rink that was our driveway, birds are chirping, and, so yes, in the middle of February, I am very happy to report from Bentley Farm, "Spring is coming!"
