Spring Arrives with Great Panoply: In which Buster and the girls greet the Month of April with heartfelt anticipation and the trampling of new grass

It's HERE!!!



Pleistocene New England has surrendered
to Goddess Persephone, harbinger of
SPRING!





My Daffies are back.


Bailey, a.k.a. Artemis the Supreme Goddess of the Hunt, stalks the land in search of the Ignominious Scourge of Civilization, the dreaded CHIPMUNK!

Ah...tourjours les petits fleurs!



And the right-proper Goddess of Spring herself makes an appearance! It's a wonder Miss Persephone can actually see anything!



The croci have all popped and are in bloom...




Sephie gets lost in deep thoughts. She says she spends her imaginative life reciting the works of Proust backwards...



Mom's little "hens and chickens" are getting some spring color.



Et Monsieur Bozo arrive!

Ah, yes...Spring is not Spring without...





BUSTERBALL!!!



To which, Miss Bailey responds,

"How insufferably tedious! Doesn't he ever TIRE of doing the same thing over and over?"





Sephie accompanies the crazed flyfisherman to the Salmon River. Everybody can fish here, as long as it's with technology that was invented during the sixteenth century.

Does dyslexia count as a "handicap?"



Bozo awaits the inevitable...



STEAK on the grill! The path to a male Kerry Blue's heart lies straight through the duodenum!



Yawn...that was quite adequate!


The whole Connecticut Valley is abloom with pretty things...

This is the University where the mad flyfishing humanoid works.

And no spring day would be complete without...




One last round of BusterBall!

Sephie and Bailey have long ago retired inside.



Bozo finally comes in to share a movie with his human mom and sister...



And peace falls upon the land.
