We’ve heard from many of you this spring, and we love the pictures you’ve sent us for our Tumblr blog, reporting on this unseasonably warm spring.
From seeding the wheat fields of North Dakota…to cleaning out irrigation ditches in drought-ravaged southern Colorado…to showcasing big bushes of already-green oregano in Topeka, Kan., we’ve been shown how busy our readers are out there.
It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I love this photo sent in by Ryan Goodman of Knoxville, Tenn. -- a cattle pasture so Technicolor green it looks like a scene straight outta “The Quiet Man.”
And who can resist the photo (above) of a new spring lamb sent in by Rhonda McClure of Wahoo, Neb.? Rhonda and her husband, Don, have started a second career on a 22.2-acre farm and are chronicling it on her blog Ewe and Us.
“The arrival of lambs has begun, and the early crops are in the ground," Rhonda reported. "It's spring once more, this year, on a legitimate small farm.”
We've also shown you some of last weekend's severe weather in the Midwest, with dark storm clouds and flooding in Nebraska.
