This is about as nice of a holiday weekend as one could ask for with a lot of sun and mild temperatures. If I needed something to complain about, (which I don't) I'll just say that we could use some rain. The last couple of nights and in the morning hours we've enjoyed a really bright, full and beautiful moon. In reading I found that the first full moon in April is called 'The Pink Moon.' This name comes from the wild ground phlox, which are as you know, one of the earliest flowers of spring.
(You may have to turn it up to hear it and get the full effect).
With the crisp temperatures, the full moon, and the birds singing, it's no wonder that a couple of the dogs, especially Toby are feeling downright giddy. On our morning walk there was a different air about him as he lagged behind and wouldn't listen when I called to him. I lost sight of him when I entered the woods to go around the barn. Toby took that moment to go on an adventure. Maybe he caught the scent of the turkey that has been around, or the other animals that are everywhere. Whatever the reason, needless to say, the birds weren't the only sound being heard this morning as my voice calling him seemed to echo everywhere. Fortunately he was found, and I can thank him for getting me my exercise! Good boy!!
