Spring scene with red bugs on trees

We sometimes say we have five seasons at Easton Mountain: spring, summer, fall, winter, and mud.  When the snow melts we don't put away our boots because the rains come and the paths become mud.

But at the same time we notice the buds getting bigger on the trees, some of them looking almost like red flowers.

One of the first gardening projects at Easton Mountain was planting bulbs in front of the Guest House.  Every year since, we have seen crocuses first and then daffodils and hyacinth followed by iris and tulips.  Note the snow shovel in the picture, reminding that a spring snow might come at any time.

But finally the day comes when we uncover the pool and turn on the outdoor shower.  We're ready for summer and for all of you in our extended community to come for a week-long camp or longer. _____________________

Spring Awakening (April 29 through May 1) will be a special time to celebrate spring at Easton Mountain and this year will feature programs by our Montreal Brothers.  Who but those who live in the north can best appreciate spring?
