We had a few days recently of sleet and ice blanketing everything , then several more days of above freezing temperatures and more rain. The ground is still a bit muddy but we are seeing signs of spring as green is appearing in the landscape and little spots of color pop up here and there. If the occasional rain and warmer weather continues, I imagine we will have a wonderful wildflower display next month.
I have also been seeing birds in our yard that I have not encountered before.
These are Cedar Waxwings.
