Day 122 — May 1st. It hit a balmy 12 degrees today. Still, I’d rather that than what we had on Monday. I know that Spring is truly here now. I saw and heard a massive flock of cranes today. I was on a short walk in Morinville and suddenly I heard their beautiful, soft trilling overhead. I looked up. And nearly cried. They are so amazing to watch and listen to. Spring really is here now. It really is.
