Is that SPRING I see?!

Here in Nova Scotia we have had what we call an “open winter”, meaning we have not been buried under several feet of snow for most of it. We haven’t had major storm after storm, or ice storms, which we have suffered in past years. This year we have experienced very few snowfalls of any consequence.

Am I complaining? … Do pigs have wings?

   No, I mean for REAL!

Of course not.

BUT … today I saw Spring.  Yes, I did!

Look:

 

 

Did you catch that?

Look again:

ROBINS!

YAY!  This to me is a sure sign of Spring. And not just one robin did I see, but a small flock of them – foraging on the ground and sitting in the trees.

Oh my gosh!  Can it be true?   

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPRING HAS SPRUNG!  In February!

Now, I realize two things about the above.  First: Winter is not officially over yet and we are sure to get more snow, but the robins are out in the open when usually we don’t see them until sometime in March. I have never seen them this early in the year. Second: It is not good writing form to use so many exclamation points, but … gosh dern it! I saw robins today! And that always makes me happy!  🙂

How about you? Have you seen any signs of Spring yet?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂

    • oh Erik, you poor boy. 😦 Snow huh? well, I remember the day … 🙂
      When I was little the snow banks were so high and seemed to be there all winter long. You would have loved that.
      I did too, then, but now … bring on Spring!

      We can still be friends, though .. right? 🙂
      And yes, I like the pig with wings, too. He looks so happy. 🙂

    And what nice Robins they are Lynn. Weather is unusual here in Ontario too. Snow just going again. Weird winter this year. I hope you see the lovely robins again, Lynn.

  4. Hello – visiting your blog from the the Our Blogs link on SheWrites. I like it. Here in southern Virginia it has been Spring-like most of the winter – unusually warm even for here. Not a bad thing unless it means we’re in for an extra-hot summer. Lovely pictures of the robins!

    • Hello Carol, welcome to my blog! 🙂
      An extra-hot summer may not be as comfortable as one would like, but it seems we have to start adjusting to climate change everywhere. Here in Nova Scotia I think our growing season is beginning to be affected by changes in our seasons.
      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your comment. 🙂

  5. See? I told you I was going to get caught up with my reading today, and I’m so glad I started here. I grew up with robins in Iowa, and they’re my favorite bird. Well, next to cardinals, perhaps. But nothing except a Texas mockingbird sings so beautifully.

    I’m glad you’re seeing them already. I’ve been sitting here watching a little sparrow flitter around with pieces of grass. Apparently it’s nest building time, and time for me to put out bits of dryer lint and yarn!

    • Hi, I’m glad you started here, too. 🙂
      Yes, I have been thinking the same, must get some nest building supplies out there to help out. I want the birds nesting close-by, although now somebody’s cat is hanging around our yard .. which I don’t appreciate for the sake of the birds. I guess all is fair in love and nature.
      Thanks for stopping in.
