I am pleased to announce.....,

That yes, by observation, Spring is here. Three weeks ago the pond ice was nine inches thick. Now there are just a few chunks still floating on the top. I lost a frog to the ice, but the fish are fine, lazily swimming in the shallows or near the surface, enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun. We tried feeding them and they even ate a bit.

Not all's right with the world -
- but some things are.
