Spring Is In The Air - Alpine, AZ

Spring has finally made it to Alpine, AZ. Crows are shredding bark off the cedar in our woodpile for nesting material. The Blue Birds are back - had to clean out their nest box this morning. Amorous Squirrels are chasing each other up and down the trees. Even Sam is in love! Our neighbor's dog Sasha comes to see him a few times a day now. The first visit of the morning there is a hearty wag "Good Morning" then they just hang out together on the back stoop for hours. (We are starting the search for a female companion for our little guy. He's lonely!)

Most of the snow is gone now except for the shady spots. The pile behind our house - which was originally 10' high (from clearing off the roof during this snowy winter)is now down to 5'. Sometime in May that will be gone too! The elk babies should be around soon and the brown forest will start to green up. My favorite time of the year!
