Signs of Spring Finally

It was 53 degrees yesterday..two inches of snow melted at the snow stick!  We might have a winner in the next couple of days!

A Robin flitted in and out of our yard.

Robin April 26

Finally he/she stopped long enough for me to catch a photo.  Some of you who live where Robins are year round may not be impressed..but the first Robin of spring is a big deal here in Minnesnowda!

I am not certain when “She who sees Robin’s first” saw her first one..no doubt it was days ago!  Even though she lives more North than me..she always sees them first.

Daughter Jen and I went out on a photo adventure last evening.  Just to see what was happening in the area.

Pussy Willows

Pussy Willows popping…a sure sign that spring might be on her way!

The weather people are forecasting 70 degrees for today..I am so looking forward to some warmth:)

    During our walk on Friday I heard robins singing for the first time this year. You forget how wonderful it sounds. The days are much longer. The Canada geese and ducks are back. I hear the chipmunks are out. Ahhh…Spring. Finally the *long* winter is over. Isn’t it great?
