|« June Frost and Snow Flurries||It was a Hit »|
The cold spring temperatures returned. With highs in the low 50’s and winds, I decided to postpone putting the seedlings out in the garden. I did get the peas planted and put out the summer squash and zucchini, but the rest will have to wait until next week. Hopefully by then the temperatures will be back to normal for this time of year.
One of the twins came up to me last night and said, “Did you know that moose growl just like a bear? That is how that mother moose sounded when she came charging out of our wood towards me!” Apparently she had a least one newly born calf with her and was in a very protective mood. When she saw my son in our yard, she decided to let him know not to mess with her or especially the babies.
The trees are almost fully leafed out, my rose bushes and the lilacs bushes are green and showing flower buds, too. Our tulips have their leaves, but so far no flowers are open. They should be flowering sometime next week.
Tucker, one of our outside dogs managed to dig himself out of the big fenced-in yard and then came up to the door for us to let him back inside his yard. That fenced-in area is about 1800 square feet of space. Anyway, he does this every summer and then has to go back on the run until the snow arrives in the fall. Although the run still enables him to wander through much of his yard, it doesn’t give him as much freedom as without. We don’t want him getting hit or hurt. We certainly don’t want him to harass any moose, especially those newborn calves. Unfortunately, many people here just let their dogs run and many baby moose are killed by them annually.
Well, that’s about all for tonight. Take care. Till next time…
