Signs of Spring

Wonderful walk today, by the pond, and spring really has arrived.  Smell of the water on the wind, the honey scent of the blossoming trees, the shout of the first redwing blackbird across the water and a sole goldfinch, our state bird, in fact, in full brilliant yellow mating plumage, flitting around my head.  

All kinds of birdsong, some of which I could recognize -- phoebe, robin, Carolina wren, blackbird, and various twitterings that served as a ground bass for the singers. Kayakers having fun on the water, their shouts and arguments blending right in.


So, for your viewing joy, I took a few pix.  Click to see better.


  1. Thank you for the photos! I save two of them for my spring folders - I like to do a slideshow of springtime scenes this time of year before I go to bed.

  2. It's not as green here yet. But things are starting. Chives are coming up in the backyard. I love chives.


Thanks so much for commenting. I read all comments with care and much pleasure!
