Signs of Spring

"Spring has returned.
The earth is like a child that knows poems."
~Ranier Maria Rilke

Not quite sure if you can see it or not, but there is a slight hint of red in our mountains, a sure sign that spring is finally arriving.  Flocks of starlings are flying through, coltsfoot are blooming by the roadside, bluebirds are back at the nest boxes and maple tree buds are swelling. 


  1. You can see the red of the red buds here, too... as you drive down the country roads... thank heavens for spring!

  2. Just makes me want to say "Ahhhhhhhh"
