    Does this mean spring is just around the corner?

    Daffodils have also been blooming for about a week in my yard !

    I saw robins a few weeks ago, but my daffodils are still pushing up through the soil! I hope Spring is on its way, but not too quickly, I want my cool weather crop to have a chance. [​IMG]

    I saw my first robin this morning here in Maine...
    It was only 20 degrees, yet it was hanging out at the bird feeder.

    I've seen two here. For the past few years we've had some robins that stay through the winter. Not this year. Don't know why, but last week was the first time I'd seen any for months. I'm not sure what to think about those two. I'll know spring is around the corner when the big flocks come, which usually after the red winged black birds show up. The true sign is when the peepers start peeping! Last spring I was sitting here at my computer when I first heard them. I think I scared everyone in BYC chat by shouting "THE PEEPERS ARE HERE!"
