Just in the last week or two they’ve started saying on the news that we’re supposed to brace ourselves for a colder and longer spring than usual. Now that’s depressing news since we’re just coming out of a colder winter than we’ve had in years.
The trouble is … I don’t quit believe the weather men.
Two weekends ago as my husband and I were driving in the countryside we noticed flocks of birds flying overhead. They were flocks of geese and ducks. Now that was what … February 22 or so? We even used scopes to verify what type of birds were flying overhead.
Then .. last weekend we noticed that the trees, in particular the willow trees, were starting to look fuller. They were still leafless of course since it’s still quit cold here in Toronto, but I think the trees are starting to develop small leaf buds.
Sure signs of spring. I’m certain of it!
