Last weekend I was pleasantly surprised by an almost warm day on Saturday. I actually went outside and cleaned up one of my flower beds and burned some leaves.
This week I spotted my first robin of the season. That is always a big thrill for me and I usually keep track of the date of my first robin spotting of the season each year. Today another Saturday with nice weather and I once again planned to spend part of my day raking leaves and burning them and clearing out some of the garden beds. Right now my back is killing me but I am satisfied with the progress I made today outside.
I took this photo of my first crocus that is blooming. My neighbor always seems to have hundreds blooming before I get any blooms so by the time I get any blooms I feel confident that spring can't be far away.
What are your favorite signs of spring that you look forward to each year?
