The first day of March has brought with it the first time I heard my Spring Peepers! Always my favorite time, signifying Old Man Winter loosening his grip :) Even if there is a pile of snow I don't care because I know it won't be long now!
It has also brought the first signs of things budding out. It is hard to see in the photo but today, everything has begun to bud out. Unfortunately it is also horrendously windy but hey, that's why they call March the kite flying month.
I know it is different the world over, but happy first signs of spring to anyone who may be reading this----
Hurray! Your beloved Peepers! :-)ReplyDelete
What a lovely sound that must be. Here in Montreal one of the first signs winter is over is the smell of skunks...not quite as pleasant, but equally exciting.
Sorry yours is a smelly one Giac, but here's to first signs of spring no matter what :)Delete
Wasn't the old saying that the Chinook was blowing? The spring wind that melted the ice?ReplyDelete
I always look for robins because in Chicago that's how we knew spring was finally there.
I always looked for robins too, but down here, I have seen robins in winter, turkey buzzards too. They don't necessarily leave as everyone believes.Delete
