I took a walk today – it was a bit windy but the temperature wasn’t bad – about 40°F and the sun was shining! Yesterday I saw my first robin of the year and today I noticed early flowers are beginning to appear! My snowdrops are coming up and a few are already blooming!
As I walked around the neighborhood, I looked for other signs of spring.
Pussy willow-type buds on another tree:
About 4 blocks from my house a homeowner has planted early crocuses around the base of a tree and they are always the flowers that bloom first – dozens of bright yellow crocus buds, some in full flower already!
