3 Sure Signs of Spring
I went out for an early morning walk this morning, taking advantage of the sun and milder air. Along the way, I saw three sure signs that spring is definitely here.
It has been a bumper crop for them this year, as a result of all the back and forth temperatures we've had. I heard City crews filled 2,600 potholes last Thursday alone. Crazy!
2. Robins and Red-winged Blackbirds
It may be fuzzy in the picture above but it is definitely a robin. I saw three of them this morning. I didn't actually see any blackbirds, but I definitely heard their distinctive call. The return of these two of our feathered friends has always been one of the first indicators of spring here in Ontario. I realized last week in Florida how much I had been missing the sound of birdsong over this long, cold winter. It was so nice to hear it again this morning as I walked around my neighbourhood.
3. Garage Sales
No question about it, the beginning of garage sale season definitely means that spring is here, although I must admit, seeing one in April was a surprise!
My first artistic addiction was beading and making jewellery, which I started doing in the summer of 2007. Since then, my artistic obsession has grown to include art journaling. Here in this blog, I write about my own and other people's creations and anything else that tweaks my fancy.
