This morning I struggled to come up with something to write. I gazed out the window and saw them. Four loons are in the pond today, hooray! The curve of their necks and shape of their heads is so distinct. It is a pleasure seeing them dive and then waiting and watching to see where they will pop up.
Yesterday I saw another animal that I haven’t seen for months. At the edge of the pond a young muskrat nibbled on green shoots. I stopped to watch and it stared at me for a few seconds and then it went back to its leafy treat, seemingly unconcerned with my presence.
This is a great time of the year to get out and soak in the sunshine.
