Spring is in the Air – the birds are cheepin’- the ground is still frozen

We are now in the “mud season” of the five seasons of the year.  Fortunately, it has been a bit dry.  Unfortunately, the ground is still frozen all over the place and here is the proof:

About 125 feet away from our permafrost.  We have this:

Note, everything here is still pretty much brown in late April.  We’re a lot farther north than “northern Minnesota” as I’ve heard Minneapolis referred to by news agencies from other states (LOL).  That city is 265 miles to the south of us, down by the Equator.  We’re definitely in the northern part of Minnesota and they are not.  I’m not competing here – well, OK, I kinda am.

It’s a lot nicer here, but again,  I’m biased.  There are no resorts in northern Minnesota who have a waterfall that divides the property.  In fact, I don’t believe I know of any resorts with a natural waterfall, anywhere.  It’s nice to have as it makes a white noise sound barrier.  In spring, when there are no leaves out, the sound of the falls and the creek can be heard great distances.  In summer, we always hear the question, “Is there a waterfall somewhere around here?”   Years ago, a canoe customer on the way to the beach asked me “…who we had ‘do’ this?”   He was referring to whom was our landscape architect who designed such a spectacularly beautiful, natural-looking,  creek.    I gave him the multiple choice answer of  “God, Mother Nature, Buddha, the Creator ” and told him to “pick one”.  It was only then that he realized that this creek has been here for a million years or so.

I don’t care what you say – that was funny, right there.
