Signs Of Spring!

Just when I thought I couldn't make it another day, I saw a yard full of robins, I combed a bushel of loose hair from my chow mix and I see the temp will be in the 70's on Friday! Now, I'm thinking that the Groundhog was right about an early spring. Kansas was cold this winter!

Seeing A robin is not necessarily a sign of spring because some (a few) don't migrate. Many however.... For us we take a red winged blackbird as our first sign, either seeing one or hearing one. Also always nice to have the snow disappear which ours hasn't.

Well, if Cathy says her robins migrate, then I believe her!

We all have our own signs of spring...mine is the buds swelling on the black pussy willow in the yard; my husband's is the first "let's go!" phone call from a member of his motorcycle gang (The Rebels Without a Clue ).

Both events of the last few days here...Spring is definitely creepin' up on us!

My sign of spring is when the Sportsman Show comes here to the Fargodome. Even walking through a $300,000+ Camper... I would still be just as happy in our 13 Scamp. Count down App on iphone says I have 28 more days until I get it out of storage!! CAN'T WAIT!!

Spring for me (in the Pacific NW-WET) means a whole lot more sunshine than gray days!

My signs of spring are looking at the calender and seeing I only have 2 more ski race road trips and then I can forget waxing the skis and get the trailer waxed up quick for its first outing of spring in a few weeks.

LOL so true! Often September is the nicest month of the year or the odds are it will be nicer than July!

Carol, that sounds GREAT to us in the PNW... more wax than moss killer!

No traditional signs of spring here yet. Our four foot fence is still partly buried under the snow and it is chilly -10C. We got a bit more snow today.

None of this deterred my man and his buddy who hooked up the Trillium and went to a woodturning weekend. The furnace was working well apparently, and they woke up to -17C outside and +20 inside. Using the Trillium saved a whole bunch of money as there were no hotel bills! They claimed that it was fun.

'Hate to rub it in, but this is a photo of our plum tree (sideways) in Northern California last week! We're having beautiful weather this week too!
Happy Camping!

Hey Gilda!

Do all plum trees grow sideways in California, or do you just live on a really steep hill?

Here Spring means mud season, where the roads look like a monster truck event, and sugaring season. We boiled yesterday. Raz

Tulip trees blooms have come and gone, but the azaleas are just about at their peak - too bad they only last a week or so in full bloom. Took this picture about fifteen minutes ago.
