Expectations of a New Englander.
Here in New England, we kind of don’t trust Winter to have pretty much gone until May. Yet in my day I have seen heavy snowfall in May. Right now things are booming in nature in the North Woods right now. Green ground cover.
The Fly Catchers have something to eat. The Kingfisher has been diving at the farm pond down back. Mergansers on the Deerfield. And of course the Peepers. Who doesn’t love the Peepers at night.
I had a friend from NYC stay here several years back and she said: how do you sleep here with so much noise. It’s a song to me. Like the Chickadee and the Cardinal.
It’s May. It always returns.
