    Saw a Robin in my yard the other day, walked right by. Spring is right around the corner.
    My daffys are starting to come up too.

    Here the skunks are coming out, I know, a weird way to tell. But when you start seeing those the weather is on it's way to warming up. I cannot wait! I have a new idea for my garden this year, come on warm weather!

    Lucky you! I've seen Robins and even Eastern Bluebirds here in Michigan this month, but haven't seen grass or bare earth since...seems like forever. We still have at least 10" of snow on the ground. I don't know how those little birds survive the frigid temps here, especially at night.

    I heard geese this morning but after the last few days and 15 inches of snow I dont think we will be seeing anything green for a long time.

    The robins are here in western Washington. As a matter of fact, they didn't leave this winter. It's been pretty mild and very wet. Shouldn't complain, but looking outside the past couple of days and seeing that white stuff... well, I just HAVE to complain a little! :shock: I am seeing buds on my forsythia, honeysuckles and bulbs are coming up! Now... we just need to get the temps up past 40 degrees!!

    I had about 15 robins in my yard this morning, but have seen a few, off and on, all winter.

    The robins are here. We are waiting for the snow to leave, also. And have yet to see the green.

    I hope I see little green thing popping through soon. I got stuck in my drive this morning. I backed out of the garage and the slush started pulling my car until I was facing sideways off the edge of the drive. Luckily my husband was still home so he could help me get out.

    Southwest MO., seeing some green grass. However, I seem to be the only one in the area that likes cold weather. Looking forward to Spring, but would be very happy to skip Summer and go straight to Fall and Winter.

    We have crocus, tulips and daffodils comeing up, and I bet yours are too but they are just staying warm under the snow.
