Spring flowers from Morning Bray Farm.

They say in New Mexico you can tell spring has arrived when the winds start.

Poor Don. Yesterday’s winds ripped down his handmade Morning Bray Farm sign.

Boys, please don’t blow away, okay?

We know spring is coming. How, you wonder?

First, the tulips.

Second, our neighbor turkeys are talkin’. The boys are doing their very best to impress the girls.


Dear Punxsutawney Phil,

Please don’t see your shadow today. We so want spring to arrive early.

This is the way Mom sees us most of the time anymore. She misses us. We know you’ll have to admit our behinds are really cute, but enough of winter already. We’re looking forward to green pastures come spring.

Very sincerely yours,

Bernard and Ellsworth
