The lovely snowdrop flowers shown above are the first flowers of spring around these parts. They pop up all over. Purple, yellow and white crocuses are also starting to pop up as well. It’s fun to go outside on a nice day and note what new signs of spring there are.
More birds are arriving all the time from their travels down south. We’ve been having a wonderful time identifying the birds that we observe in the yard. We will be working on putting up a blue bird nesting box very soon, in hopes of attracting some of the NY state bird, the Eastern Bluebird. The children and I also made some birdseed hangers for the birds and hung those up in the yard. I’ll try and post some photos of them – they are so easy to make and look so pretty hanging from branches in the yard.
Even though I was so ready for winter to be gone, it made me that much more thankful for spring!
