Little Signs of Spring March 14

Things are still pretty colorless. One has to look hard for the signs of spring.

There's still an occasional pile of dirty snow lingering around unmelted. (But not in this picture.)

This past week it's gone way below freezing at night. Next week there will be some nights it doesn't hit freezing. How exciting.

We're not ready to plant annuals yet, though. In SW Michigan the average last frost date is the middle of May.

The bluebirds are back and checking out the nest boxes.

Robins are back, as well.

Yesterday I was thrilled to see a little white snowdrop poking up through the oak leaves.

Today was even more exciting. There was a bee on it. The first bee spotted this spring.

Little things mean a lot.
