Subtle signs of spring

One sunny day this week, I saw a Robin.
This may not seem like a big deal to most people, but to me it is always the first sign of spring.
And while my gardens are still under at least 18 inches of snow, that sighting gives me hope that spring may actually be on its way. This morning there was a lonely Red Winged Blackbird outside my bedroom window. Another sign of spring!
Just now I looked out that same window only to discover a blizzard out there!
Temperatures are expected to drop to -16°C overnight.
Spring isn't coming any time soon, but tomorrow I am going TO spring.
Tomorrow is our trip to Canada Blooms!
And I can't wait!

  1. Robins and Redwings are my first signs of spring too, but none yet -just piles of snow.
