Spring? … snow … Spring?

On Monday, we went for a lovely Spring bird walk, Spring in all her early glory, temps in the low 70s! skunk cabbage

Skunk cabbage in abundance with its voluptuous blooms,

our first ruby-crowned kinglet of the season singing to beat the band, ruby crowned kinglet

a Phoebe singing Phoebe-Phoebe?-Phoebe- Fee-bi-ly! eastern_phoebe_kellyazar

Red-wing blackbirds “congaree”ing red winged blackbird

Several very blue bluebirds, my favorite – I want to weave something lovely in that blue and orange bluebird

Our first blue Scilla, white Scilla, one lonely daffodil, and our first crocus on last week’s walk.  crocus scilla

 

It’s been so nice that we’ve finally been leaving the cars out of the garage overnight, getting the winter’s salt washed away by the rains yesterday.  And then, woke up this morning to 2 inches of snow! and 27 degrees, requiring sweeping and scraping windshields before breakfast.  But all is forgiven – snow has melted and it’s back to 40 degrees and climbing, with 50s forecast for the next 5 days!
