March 31

Today the sun is shining. The lake is like glass with small ripples caused by tiny unseen whirlwinds. The pair of Mallard ducks is back again this year. Along with the small contingent of Canada geese that nest here until the babies are big enough then fly North. The sky is hazy blue and smells of smoke. It's prairie burning time and patches of dark smoke can be seen in the distance. No leaves yet. The trees are still bare, except for the buds on the pussy willow and the small bumps on the other brown branches. The banks of the lake are mucky from where the water has receded. Patches of green floating algae push against their edges. It's quiet as the Earth waits for the warmth of the sun to awaken it further. Happy Wednesday my friends. Cheers~
