Nature imitates man

With spring comes the return of what I call the Car Alarm Birds.  They have a call that sounds almost exactly like a car alarm:  whooooop whooooop whooooop whooooop   peeew peeew peeew peeew.

March 11th I complained about it snowing.  Two days ago (April 1) it hit (at least) 88°F here.  The grass is mostly green and will probably need to be mowed by next weekend.  I've even seen a few speedwell flowers popping up amid the grass. 

The frogs along the creek are making an incredible racket at night.

I haven't seen any bunnies lately (though something keeps nibbling at the vegetable scraps I put out, and it's not the goats), but my SO says he saw a squirrel running off with a mouse in its mouth.  Weird.
