|This baby robin is ready for the world|
|Just a little snow|
I took a walk in the woods the other day to look for some signs of spring and they were there – green patches in amongst the weeds, some tentative budding on the trees, a couple of shoots poking up from the ground here and there. I heard the birds chirping and watched the squirrels recklessly chasing each other through the tree branches.
I am anxious for the first blooms of spring; crocus, daffodils and tulips, magnolia trees and apple blossoms. I want to put in my garden and watch the progress as my seedlings sprout and begin to grow. I want to open the windows and be able to sit outside in the sun. I want to watch the hummingbirds at the feeder.

Checking the migration map for hummingbirds here in
I see that they
can arrive anytime in April. I think I’d better go get those feeders up for any
early arrivals. You just never know. They might be as anxious as I am. Illinois
