Last time I wrote, there was snow on the ground and I was daydreaming of the long beautiful summer days, birds singing, flowers blooming and fish tugging on my line. Well those days are finally here! Summer is in full swing and Billy and I have observed some pretty cool events in nature that come with living here. The temperature was 90 degrees one weekend in May and the following weekend on fishing opener, it was snowing! (A reminder to pack clothes for extreme temperature swings if you are planning a trip to this area.) Eagles are flying, grouse are drumming and the loons are calling. We’ve seen 7 new Canada goslings swimming & strolling around by the pond now and a pair of nesting wood ducks have taken up residence in a dead tree we watch from the living room.
