Early this morning as I looked out our window there was Mr Robin singing his good morning song on the wire across the road , it is so nice to hear and see them again . I saw a Bald Eagle soaring high above the house today so they have returned to tree tops in the forest in the valley no doubt and most of our spring birds are back, now I am just looking and listening out for our Song Sparrow now and to see when our Turkey Vulture's return as well .
The sun is shining all though the winds are cold today , Miggs and I wondered the yard to have a look to see what is springing up if anything in the gardens since we had that week of record breaking warm temps and lots of sunshine .
I found a pansy here and there ready to bloom .
A couple of Hyacinth's slowly pushing through .
Wild Grape Hyacinth's to .
Then I noticed this , my Bleeding heart bush also pushing through .
This is another but for the life of me I cant remember what it’s called lol !
The Forsythia bush is budding as are some of our trees already .
Miggs was following me about playing with her toy and enjoying the sunshine .
Things are beginning to spring up now as we are in the last few days of February already . WOW ! time fly's doesn't it ?!
I will be keeping an eye on all the other things in my gardens springing up in hopes all made it through our mild and practically snowless winter , one never knows how dormant theses plants need to be over the winters or how much of a winter we need to have for them to come back to life .
I am looking forward to March 12th when we bump up the clocks one hour ahead then the sun sets later in the evenings and eventually rises earlier to . Then.. well .. the ultimate and official arrival of Spring March 20 th , 6:29 A.M. EDT or March 21st . In Canada and the rest of the northern hemisphere, the first day of the spring season is the day of the year when the Sun crosses the celestial equator moving northward (on March 20th or 21st). This day is known as the Vernal Equinox ! either way WOOHOO ! I cant wait .
Until next time .
