The signs are here :-)
The first crane has been spotted by the lake today 🙂 Theres always a few that comes way to early and then get a hard time surviving until spring arrives. They will most likely be fed all the time but nasty cold nights is tough for them anyway. We still have that wonderful springwinter weather but that will end by the end of this week they say. Winter will return for a while and they also say that the cold weather will stay for quite some time, but we all know how great they are predicting weather more than an hour ahead 🙂 🙂 🙂
But there are more, Last night I heard several geese flocks passing by in the darkness and today Trumpet swans, or as we call them Song swans, flew just above my neighbor’s house. The first snowdrop buds are showing above the snow but they won’t open up for weeks yet I’m afraid, but they are there anyway 🙂 Also the first pollen is flying around in the air making life tough for those allergic against it and that is as a sure spring sing as anything else 🙂
I even have sunflower seeds left in the feeders now so all the small birds are preparing for the coming families and are most certain looking for places to nest. But I still have just as many deers here so I will continue to feed them but I will put out less food as soon as the grass turns green again. I can see on Doris that she’s getting bigger now 🙂 and Rune needs all help he can get since he seems to have lost one of his eyes.
I’m not sure I’ll write anything here on Thursday since we’re having the meeting about the municipal water and sewer system. Perhaps I’ll leave some info about how things went, I know people will hate each other after this meeting, those that wants this have already shown aggressive behaviour when one talks back to them 🙂 🙂 🙂
Have a great day!
