It has been a very mild winter. I haven't used the new snow blower, and I only plowed the driveway twice. Even then, we only got a few inches of snow.
Last year we had a lot of snow . . .
. . . as we did two years ago!
This year there are just a few piles on snow by the barn.
I checked by the rock wall near the barn, and the daffodils are starting to push up. They should be emerging in a few weeks.
I went cycling today, and heard the call of red wing blackbirds. I was lucky to see one displaying. I also heard robins, though I haven't seen any yet.
I am sure we will get more snow - maybe even a significant storm. But you know spring has arrived when the red wing blackbirds appear!
