I have been hearing spring peepers at night. I heard turkeys talking at sunrise on Tuesday. I hear the whisper of tiny morel mushrooms in my dreams every night. I also hear Jeanne telling me if it snows just one more time, she is going to kick my behind. I do believe that spring has sprung.

The warm days are making many spring flowers bloom, although the wildflowers have yet to do so. Ramps are up for all of you who have been waiting patiently for a good mess of them.

*    *    *    *

The morels are already being harvested as far north as Jonesboro, Ill., and Nashville, Tenn. They should be up here in a week or two.

Potholes are getting patched in Calhoun, although I have noticed a lack of patching in counties to our north and west. I will admit that I have yet to travel south or east this spring.

Folks are starting to discuss fishing when they meet on the street. I have been giving the fine art some consideration myself, and may even buy Jeanne her license this week.

There will be a lunar eclipse (eclipse of the moon) on Apr. 4. It will begin just before dawn and the moon will set before the eclipse is over. There will be another lunar eclipse this fall, where we should see more, perhaps all of it.
