It’s kind of scary to say out loud but I think we’ve turned the corner from winter into spring. The male gold finches are gold now, and the grass has greened up with all the rain. Here are a few other signs of impending warmth way up here in Michigan.
We’ve got a new neighbor who’s settling in at the local pond.
There are buds on some of the trees; here’s a big bud unfurling on the pear tree.
And my favorite, the red bud tree is getting ready to put on a show any day now.
But mostly the biggest sign of spring is that Katie and I get outside a lot more!
She’s probably right.
