It's just that time of year, still with numerous temporary ponds in the fields. Before I get too far behind the seasons I have a few more pictures of fences around the valley. They're ubiquitous and we take them for granted, but when you see the cattle out in the summer you realize they're important.
In some places it looks like the water flooding these fields will take so long to disappear that it will delay planting.
I'm sure some farmers will soon be frustrated at not being able to get out on the land.
Can't resist adding a photo from earlier in the month when we had our April snowfall.
And this one from the winter. It's almost unbelievable that we had 2-3 feet of snow on the level here, and it's all gone - though the stream down the watershed here is certainly roaring.
