Spring arriving on a flurry of snowflakes...........

It's snowing again..................spring arrives Thursday. I am trying very hard to be optimistic but it's difficult when we are getting horizontal snow! No daffodils and crocus poking up through three feet of snow.

I did see my first robin yesterday. A fat little fellow he was. Obviously HE had a good winter wherever he was. Lots of birds at the feeders this morning. Beautiful grosbeaks, nuthatch, chickadee; tufted titmice, red headed woodpeckers, several species of swallows and of course, the blue jays who squawk at everyone. We put up a new feeder with shelled peanuts in it. The birds love it. :0) The red squirrels do as well.
