After stopping in the swamp we continued our drive home down the back road past a lot of interesting (at least to us) rural countryside. We kept our eyes peeled for those Sandhill Cranes, but no luck.
Clearly many farmers have been out preparing their fields for crops, and in many cases planting them. We badly need rain to help those crops along.
FROST last night, killing off tomatoes planted too early and surprising a number of people. I've heard that you need to wait until June 1st for planting tender plants here but until now I didn't believe it! And yesterday there was SNOW overnight further south, up on the highlands!
