Tomorrow is February 1,2011.
What does this mean?
We are one day closer to spring,yet in southern Manitoba,
we can probably expect at least 6 more weeks of winter.
Since it will still be a while before the signs of spring show up,I will take a look back to spring 2008.
What says spring better than skeins of geese in the sky?
Early in spring I can look forward to seeing these Crocuses in my garden.
The color is so bright after all that winter white.
To me there is perhaps no sounds more spring like than that of the American Robin or the Western Meadowlark.
Each spring I know that the yellow-bellied Sapsucker will come to the Amur Maples on my yard.
The male with his bright red cap is quite a lovely bird.
Another spring bird in my area is the White-throated Sparrow.These guys not only look good,but also have a delightful song,which they whistle frequently.
Are you ready for spring,or have signs of it already made their presence known in your area?
Thought for today:
After winter comes the summer.
After night comes the dawn.
After every storm.there comes clear,open skies.
