Is that Spring peeking out?

We are not going to talk about the 40 degree rainy day we had yesterday. This week was one where you could see Spring was trying to stretch her muscles and shake off the hibernation of Winter.
Wednesday I was able to sneak out a free hour and took a walk around both cranberry bogs. I measured it when I got home and it turns out it is 2.4 miles. Decent. The smaller bog across the street is 1.1 mile and that is a great distance for the girls.  I am hoping to work them up to doing both bogs.
While walking I was able to check out the new bridge. Sadly I do not know the origin of this bridge but I am happy to be able to use it. In the past if you wanted to walk completely around the big bog you would need to go out onto the street to get around a small stream. This beautiful bridge now makes that not necessary. It seems they sold planks probably to off set some of the cost. I love when they do that.

During the move I focused on making it as smooth for the girls as possible. I was not prepared for the feeling of loss that came when I was alone in the house and yard in the last few days. One of the things I did was dig up most of the hydrangeas from the yard. Some I had bought for myself and some were gifts from the kids and I just didn't want to walk away from everything we had built in the years we had lived there.
As I type this I just realized I had not thought about this pain in a really long time. I am glad that it feels like a healed pain, a fresh pink heal but healed none the less.
Anyway, yesterday in the rain I decided to grab a rake and clear out a pile of leaves wrapped around them. I was so happy to see some buds. So out of 5 I can at least say 2 survived the transplant. YAY!
Wait, wait, wait. Look what I found in the yard today. More buds and a bunny!
