Signs of Spring Stirring



Snow melting ,  roves dripping and steaming  , puddles forming , birds busy feasting chasing each other around and singing   , grass is showing , Song Sparrow has arrived  ,  Foggy mornings  , Sun rising    , warm temps  , buds on trees and bushes , no sign of Robins yet keeping an ear and eye out for them though .

Hi Elaine - Great photos. I have not noticed buds yet but lots of snow melting and the birds are very excited. Is it time now to put the bird houses out? How far from the feeders is best? Enquiring minds want to know. haha! "Hi Miggs"

Yes, it is starting to happen ... lots of melting yesterday. The grass on the paths throughout the garden is finally showing, mounds of bird seed appearing under the feeders, and perhaps now the grass is finally making an appearance in some places the robins will return.

Good Morning, I love your pretty sunrise shot.. And the Song Sparrow is a beauty! Miggs is always a cute favorite.. I am glad our snow is melting too. I have been seeing the Cardinals chasing each other lately.. Have a happy day!

HI Elaine... It has been a long winter hasn't it!
I woke this morning and thought at first it was snowing, the fog was so thick. ; ).
Lovely signs of springs show in your nice pictures.
Miggs is a cute as ever :)

Elaine, don't laugh, go and see the title of my post today...great minds my dear. LOL.

Spring stirs our souls, and gladdens our hearts. Those tiny signals that winter's grip is losing the fight...hooray.

The sparrow must be impatient for spring!

It's nice to see the snow melting down just from the heat of the sun alone as our temperatures haven't been that mild until the last 2 days. It got up to 10 here at noon but the wind has shifted and it's slowly going down again. No song birds here yet. I'm still watching for them though and all the other signs of spring. Enjoy!

Linda Kay said...

How exciting for you to be able to see the grass once again!

Hi Elaine, Signs of spring are bursting forth here as well. Our days have been nice and warm-60's, but I know we are a long way off til spring. Wish it weren't so.
We have sparrows and doves and our snow is melting in most areas.
Hope you are having a fantastic week.
Hugs, Noreen

I am quite surprised at how fast the snow is actually melting.

The Furry Gnome said...

Looks like spring is arriving down your way!

Margaret Adamson said...

Great that your snow is now melting and spring will soon be with you now. Miggs will miss the snow

Amy at love made my home said...

Hey look at that!! Spring is springing all around you!! xx

Lisa Sall - Sall's Country Life said...

I wish we had some snow to melt!! Love all of your photos, spring is coming in small signs that's for sure! Miggy, you are as cute as ever!!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

It's happening here too, Elaine, but ever so slowly because there is so much to melt down. We may get some rain this weekend and hopefully not snow, which should help and then there will be another concern - flooding.
