Is it Spring Yet?

Inquiring minds want to know.

  1. In the midst of icy cold, howling wind and driving rain here in the Willamette Valley (2 inches of rain in the last 30 hours) this Seattle expat suited up and similarly suited up my little dog (who I do not let read about Benji….my dog has some very negative cattitude) and sallied forth. And guess what I found! The first shoots of my fritillaria popping up and as well barely peeking above the soaked cold soil the about a quarter inch of daffodil leaves! YES in the “bleak midwinter” there are signs of spring. And one local small grocer is now bringing in greenhouse-grown tylips already. Incredible lifts to the weary winter spirit, both of those helpers.

    • I was misled by all the birds out yesterday, chirping and feeding on berries. In fact it’s quite cold and rainy here too! But now that the snow has melted, I think it’s time for spring! 🌱😊

  2. Well…the days are getting longer…minute by minute, so we are headed in the right direction.
    What kind of bird is that ? It isn’t familair here in NE Ohio.

  3. Ah, you have a Varied Thrush!! Beautiful bird, we had one come to our yard a few years ago, haven’t seen one since.
