#222 Remarque: "Simple Pleasure"

Spring comes late in the Rockies.  On this day, a pair of Mallards and a pair of Canada Geese are nesting on my pond and a riot of blossoms are on my wild plum trees.  Robins are building a nest outside my window and the mule deer are losing their winter coats.  Still, a Wyoming spring means a fire at night.
I love the simple pleasures of living in the high country.

Again the blackbirds sings; the streams, 
Wake , laughing , from under their winter dreams,
And tremble in the April showers, 
The tassels of the maple flowers.
                                      - John Greenleaf Whittier
