Signs of Spring
First we noticed that although we did need our jackets, it was warmer than yesterday, and there was NO snow. That's always good.
Next we saw that the maple trees looked red. Soon that red will be all over the sidewalks, but for now it's pretty in the trees.
The squirrels were busy, robins were flying about, and all the other birds were being noisy.
Also, there was bunny poop. Lots and lots of bunny poop.
In the backyard we startled a bunny who quickly bounded away into the next yard. It also startled us, even though we were looking for it.
Little green shoots were pushing up through the last old piles of fall leaves that didn't get picked up before the snow fell in November.
And then Feinstje noticed it. The best of all the signs of spring. A tiny purple flower. He asked if he could pick it to bring inside and put in a jar. And so we did.
