Phoebe is the only one this morning who was happy to see a dusting of new snow on the ground. But, even with this icy precipitation coming down, even Phoebe has to accept that this winter is almost over.
For awhile she was Queen of the Mountain.
With persistence and hard work, Phoebe dug out a tunnel.
Last week the snow pile melted and the roof to the tunnel disappeared.
It was still a good place to gaze at the world. Her place.
But, the rain of the last few days has washed away most of the snow.. Now it’s just a muddy path that the goats can see.
Phoebe would rather stay in her dry and cozy den inside under the nesting boxes, where I’m sure she’s plotting what to do when the ground warms and dries out. Dirt tunnel season.
