Busy Spring

Wow, where does the time go. It has been a while since I have had time to write on my blog. Our two oldest grandchildren graduated from high school the past 2 weeks and our business has kept us very busy--that is a good thing! The greenhouses are loaded with plants, the prairie is blooming in yellow and purple and the grass is growing--on the prairie and in the house yard!
We spotted an eagle on the osprey nest a couple weeks ago and thought the osprey was gone for the season--but today his is BACK!! I certainly do not know what that means for the future but at least he has returned, if only for a few days. We know he has not forgotten us.
It seems as though summer has arrived, so we bought an air conditioner for the cabin, much to
Dwight's dismay. He thinks summer is ruined by air conditioning, he loves HOT and HUMID :(
There are usually only a couple days of the year he considers "summer". Anyway, our guests will be comfortable, and that is what is important.
Some of our children used the canoe yesterday to paddle the Little Sioux River, they were scraping the bottom in many places and our canoe is a very wide bottom. It seems nearly impossible with all the snow we had, that the river should be so low this early in the season--usually the 4th of July is getting "iffy" for canoes and by August last year the river was just a small stream. We are very dry and need a good rain, maybe this weekend, it is usually rainy on Memorial Day. I will try to do better with the blogging. Enjoy your holiday weekend. Bev
