After the robins came in the snow, the days got warmer (really warmer for a week), my winter coat got put away and the daffodils blossomed, I was still waiting for the fringies.
I don't have to wait any longer for most things, and a little longer for the red maples to turn green. I can see the buds of apple blossoms......that's exciting and it makes me walk a little longer.
I will still have to wait to spot a Canada Lily or Lady Slipper, but I have been told that the Spring Peepers (frogs) are out; I haven't been able to hear those, or crickets, for years; hearing aids don't work for all things.
Our grand-dogs are coming to visit today, Gizmo, Frodo and Babe will arrive in a great rush to get out of the car and onto the grass. Dogs will be dogs, then they can come inside for some water.
