We have one cherry tree on our property that always blooms first. This year we pruned it WAY back since we could never reach the cherries. We had to watch the crows eat all of our delicious Rainier Cherries while being relegated to the measly low hanging fruit. Two days ago the cherry tree finally blossomed. Even with all of these signs of spring, I am not sure summer is coming.
This morning we woke up to 3 Ancona ducklings freshly hatched in the incubator. There are about 25 more to come. I love listening to them talk to each other. I can’t help singing “I Want to Break Free” to them. They do not care. They don’t know the struggle of life yet. They don’t know that there are other ducks alive on the farm. They don’t know about the dogs. They don’t know about the grass turning brown in the summer (something that I just CANNOT get used to).
The parallel to Easter Sunday is obvious. Little tiny ducks, valiantly pushing the top of their egg aside, escaping from the tomb of the egg.
I could write more about that but I prefer to watch Queen in what could be the best music video ever conceived and created. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and Happy Easter. I really just wanted to have more people watch Queen. I just watched it 3 times in a row. I wish that Freddie Mercury had ever worn an outfit that I could pull off for Halloween.
And yes, I know, this is not my best blog post.
