    Much better than the dead pidgeon that the cat left on the back doorstep here as a "present".

    Walked around the house today and some bulbs have sprouted! Hurrah! Started some early seeds and almost all my ordered seeds etc have come. DH is going to build me a light stand and a new raised bed this year so hope to grow more veggies. Yeah!

    We've had lots of robins for about 3 or 4 weeks now but no sign of spring.....yet. Well, my daffodils survived the storms so I guess that might be a sign of better weather to come.

    Well, we had hail today and snow earlier this week. We have no idea what season it is, and neither do the flowers.

    I live in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Virginia. This is pretty cold territory in the winter months and we've had lots of cold for the last 3 months.
    Today we saw a beautiful fat robin (our first sighting) and 4 purple finches eating berries from a vine in the backyard.
    I also have sweet purple crocuses blooming.

    I'm so glad your spring is in sight. I always have a few robins in my garden, I wonder if they look the same as yours. Do you know why the robin has a red breast.

    Answer: a little gray bird was hopping around the cross and a drop of blood has fallen on his breast that's where he got the red from.

    It'll be a long time before we see robins in Saskatchewan - has been -30 degrees C lately only -17.9 now - the chickadee's love it here thou. Lot's of snow to melt first.

    Enjoy the robin.

    we've had one all over winter, coming on back door step and dustbins begging food as husband goes to feed our old shetland pony.
