Signs of Spring

It's Rural Thursday and I've been away in the very urban Brooklyn and Manhattan, New York.   A quick drive on the country road not far from my house this morning produced these visual signs of spring:   horses cropping green grass instead of hay, Canada geese checking out nesting areas in a boggy pasture, and "snake grass" growing dark green along the gravel road.  There's hope for a change in seasons!



Snake Grass is actually called that....also Horsetail.  Like bamboo, it is evidently invasive if grown as an ornamental plant.

There's nothing like seeing the green starting to come though-- everyday seems to be more green up here in Wallowa valley, too. Love the snake grass photo!

Love the softness of the first two shots - especially the horse!
I have never seen that grass but I really like it.

Thanks for your visit to my Rural post.
