Spring is trying hard to …. spring. We still have snow on the ground but there are some bare patches. The glacial formations in the driveway remain huge. Herds of robins have shown up though, the goldfinches are starting to turn a bit yellow, the cardinals and woodpeckers are making a racket and the bluebirds have been house hunting. They must have figured that the cold will end sometime. A few snowdrops have poked up and some daffs and other bulbs appeared in the leaf litter the other day. Pussy willows are in evidence and I cut some forsythia to force. If we can just get the temps to rise above freezing for more than a day, I think spring will be bustin’ out all over.
