Hocus Crocus – Has Spring Really Sprung?

Crocus are in bloom

By: Pat Coate

Or are the blooms just a teasing illusion…….

The birds give us hope as they seem to think spring is arriving:

• The robins are out in force.
• Cardinal song greets me each morning.
• Large flocks of geese and swans are moving through.
• The grackles are doing their best to inspire the next Hitchcock.
• The mourning doves have got their little head bobbing and preening thing going.
• Song sparrows are starting to sing their hearts out.

But, alas, we now have a newly fallen 7 inches of snow………
