Intimations of spring

The condo yard men came and cleaned up practically everything. Rabbits are nibbling above the cans I have protecting the tulips. Goldfinches are gold! Cool! Robins omnipresent.

Temperature still cold, cold cold. The slough has not thrown off its winter coat, but I can see buds swell on the forsythia, as well as the rhododendrum.

Crocus are above ground. I had given them up for lost. Oregano activity. Chipmunks about. Squirrels playful. One has the sense of a great many things happening out of sight and ready to burst into view. March is always the worst month, and a cold start to April is depressing, but soon, spring will come.

And we'll all be ready.
