This ain’t February.

I mean, the calendar says it is, but it really isn’t.

Cattle don’t forage on snowless ground here in February:

Bulls don’t paw and grub through the rattling corn stubble:

Mount Holyoke doesn’t watch over fallow fields of flattened grasses as the sun sets:

No, this isn’t February – it’s something else.

It ain’t right, I tell ya.

The top two were reeled in by Ollie, the last one is the work of that scoundrel Elliot.  That boy gets around.

Between the snows of Winter and the blossoms of Spring sets the season of Mud, with its gray skies and awakening pallette.

Receding snows reveal last season’s corn stubble:

A horse roots for green shoots on a southern Vermont farm:

…and a patch of moss springs to life in the first warm days of the season:

It’s not fully here yet, but it’s coming.
