Weather people say it will reach 50 (10 C) today. So what if it might rain a little too…we’re still excited.
It’s been a long winter and I am not alone in waiting impatiently for spring.
Lately it seems even inanimate objects are waiting….waiting…
…waiting for the first soft spring breeze tinged with warmth.
But there is hope. Yesterday on the way to doggie school I spotted a red winged blackbird preening in the top of a tree. I haven’t heard them yet but I am sure I will today when Katie and I go to the park to play.
In fact last weekend while Katie and I were scuttling around avoiding the bitter wind I’m almost sure I heard a sandhill crane’s cry. And earlier in the week I’m almost positive I saw two of them standing on the ice in a marshy area as I was driving to work. I just caught them out of the corner of my eye but I’m sure those were cranes and not geese. Almost sure.
Right now our morning backyard still has snow. (Click on photo to ‘see the light.’)
But we’re betting on the weather guy that this afternoon will be amazing. And we listen to Mr. Cardinal as he sings with joy.
