Spring is Officially open for Business!

At exactly 1:48 a.m. (eastern time) Spring threw open it's doors and announced it's Grand Opening! Or so they tell me...But here we've officially kicked off the Mud Season! Not that I'm complaining, mind you. Anything is better than snow.

While my neighbors aren't all as lucky as I am the general mood is improving as the community begins to see sure signs of spring. The Robins are back. There has been talk of Canadian Geese heading north (I still haven't seen them but I'm a believer...It's kinda like believing in Santa Claus! LOL). The deer are in the fields in groups of 30 to 40! And the local bank has finally switched their outdoor sound system from songs from the movie "White Christmas" to songs from Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade". Yes, Mud season/Spring has arrived!

Go ahead, rub it in! Only half of my driveway is still ice covered so there! LOL How sad is it that we embrace mud season? There have been lots of geese and robins appearing in the Phoenix area and I've got a dove (or two?) that have moved into one of my small spruces. I expect this year won't be much different than last, the snow will be gone about mid April :(

Happy Spring! You'd never know it here in Nova Scotia today as we've had several hours of freezing rain this morning, but at least it's official! :)

Woo hooo! This reminds me of when we had our exchange student from Ecuador. Since the weather is perpetually spring there (in Quito, which is in the Andes mountains), she had no experience of the seasons. She thought that once the calendar said it was spring, we wouldn't get any snow anymore and the days would instantly be like where she lived. LOL!

I think I saw some bare ground as we scooted around town .. and our 3 stooges (Morning Doves) are together again .. plus a squirrel ran over top a snowbank and gave us the finger while doing that .. so you have to know THEY know something ?
