the first sign here is always the crocus, but they're not up yet.

usually the first sign here is the vultures returning to hinkley park. every year on march 15th like clockwork, vultures are sighted flying back. people have even made it to be a small festival to celebrate. i never went though because it's usually still way to cold out for me lol

I have hyacinths peeking out of the ground, the buds on the trees have gotten a little bigger, and I heard birds for the first time yesterday. With 9 degree windchills today, though, it sure doesn't feel like spring is coming!

it was getting a little warmer here in PA and the snow was all gone, but yesterday the temp. just dropped and it started snowning for a little while all of a sudden.
the only signs of spring left now are the bagful of $300 worth of spring clothes i got earlier in the week in hopes of actually getting to wear them sometime soon and the memory of the spaghetti strap shirt i had on on Monday.

Like Wasabi, we have flowers year around. It's the trees that I notice. They are so pretty when in full bloom as some are now.

The birds are always here and I told Paul the other day we need to claim them as dependents with feeders in the front and back yards.
