I didn’t think spring would arrive this year. Just a week ago, we listened to the ping of freezing rain hit the windows and then leave a gift from Mother Nature of snow and ice behind. Although we still have some snow in the woods where the sun can’t break through, there has been a shift from white to green.
The birds are singing in harmony again. There are no brisk winds and the air has warmth to it – refreshing. The days are longer, the earth is unfreezing allowing green shoots to poke through like a promise of good things to come. For me, it was a happy day, we had a spring visitor. He is one we look forward to seeing after a long winter.
Out the front door, we had another visitor. One lone turkey scratching away.
I love to see the green emerge from a long winters nap.
Happy spring! Enjoy the sun 🙂
