We're back home now in the Arctic. Flowers are sprouting. The tundra is still brown, but not for long. These little red flowers were teeny tiny- about half the size of a penny. I wandered around for a while in my backyard, listening to birds and enjoying the cool air. Two geese came in for a landing near me, communicating very loudly to each other as they descended. As soon as they were on the ground they ruffled their feathers and were quiet. Cute.
