Hi everyone. Happy new week. I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
One of the things it's been time to do lately is to keep track of the changed in nature that signal the arrival of spring. It's something I've always been a geek about and record every year. It's nice to have a record since spring here in New Hampshire can start any time between mid-March to even in bad years late April.
When do I see the first robin? (Wednesday, March 24)
When does the snow finish melting in the yard? (Monday March 29)
When do my crocuses bloom? (Not yet but close)
When does my phoebe, a type of fly catcher bird, reappear under the eaves of my husband workshop? (Sunday April 4)
When do we hear the first spring peepers, a type of tree frog? (Not yet.)
It's exciting after a long quiet winter. (Does this sound like my life needs more excitement? Ha-ha!)
Here's the tiny bit of snow left in my backyard last Monday (March 29) in the morning.
