Overnight Tuesday, the weeping willows at my library leafed out. In the last day or so, daffodils in my backyard starting blooming, just in time for the 24 hours or so or cold rain we're in the midst of, now.
The birding listserv I'm on is a buzz with spring activities: herons nesting on the river, ospreys returning, a thrush spotted. (Oh, look at that: I can get it as RSS feed instead. I wonder if I would like that?)
