We had some snow overnight a few days ago. Not a lot but enough to cover things. It is supposed to be spring.
I see a few encouraging signs. The trees are putting forth leaves. High winds have even blown a few baby seeds from the maple trees.
Lawns are being mowed early Sunday. I wonder why that is the day so many people choose to mow the lawn.
As I drive by farms with cattle I see so many tiny calves. So far I have not seem any lambs or kids. Maybe their mothers are keeping them more out of sight.
I have seen a few young deer. I think for the most part the really young ones are kept secluded. I have however seen a couple with their spots still in place.
Our town used to be a haven for feral cats. There are still a few but not as many. I have not seen any kittens this year.
A lot of families have a dog or two. It is seldom that any have babies. This state requires that all rescue dogs be fixed soon after adoption. It is a good idea.
A sure sign of spring is the turkey vultures. They have returned. I see them soaring in the sky scouting for tasty morsels.
The weather is having a hard time making up its mind. It will be extremely warm for a couple of days then temperatures will drop. Nighttime temperatures are often at or below freezing.
So I ask you is it spring yet?
