Welcome, Spring!

Jake, our Yellow Lab, is enjoying his first swim of the season.

Blue may be right. Here is the pond just a week ago. Brrr!

Meanwhile, the bald eagles are celebrating the first day of Spring by deciding to give our chickens a break and to dine on fish. They flapped off shortly after this picture with one of our eight-pound trout, unfortunately:
