Rained all day yesterday – not snow – and that’s something to celebrate. My walk this morning found a few buttercups scattered around and the pasque flowers have buds. It’s late for the flowers this year, but we can expect an abundance of them in a few weeks. I eventually ran into the bison and the moms all looked at me like I was an intruder, grunting to their calves to keep close. Further on, I watched a coyote trot across the meadow still full of snow, but soft enough that she kept sinking in. She stopped to do some mousing – jumping into the air and landing front feet first on the mouse, a quick chomp and she was off to find more. What a great morning!
