I took a short walk through the front pasture this afternoon.  Sunny, 68F and beautiful.  I saw 4 varieties of butterfly, a big black one, several small yellow, brown and an orange.  The yellow butterflies were working hard on some tiny purple flowers.  They were hard to photograph.

We were inundated by grasshoppers last year. They ate everything the drought didn’t kill.  The unwelcome signs of spring this year are several small grasshoppers in February.
