Spring Has Sprung!

Okay it's chilly out, cloudy, and gloomy but it's a glorious morning !!
My daffodils are poking their little heads up. Birds are in the backyard
on the basketball hoop protecting the nest they built there last year.
AND I can hear a woodpecker outside pecking !!!!!!
Not to mention only 9 more days before the buzzards make their return like they do every year on the 15th like clockwork !!!


Any signs of spring by anyone else ?

Yep!! I've seen robins in town!! We still have LOTS of snow though...I wonder what the robins are eating? No bugs (if they eat bugs) yet and no way to get to the worms. poor robins

I'm jealous -- but if it's come to Ohio, Northern Illinois can't be too far behind!

I have crocus, daffodils and anemones blooming, the trees are budding, and the bluebirds are back. The robins have been here for a month...and my allergies are kicking up. I had the windows open all week last week, and as lovely as it is to air the house out, we get lots of pollen, not only from my 2 acres, but the woods and fields beyond.
Still, my spirits lift when things start greening up.

LMAO. We have just had WINTER arrive for the first time this season. LOL. I don't expect spring around here for at least 6 weeks.
