Sure signs of spring..

The calendar may dictate when Spring arrives...

Mother Nature may control the actual arrival of spring ...

BUT for me the sure sign of the arrival of spring is:

1) the loud honking of the geese as they arrive back after their winter hiatus...



2) a robin



and 3) our packing our bags for a trip up to our Nation's Capital to a play party!




Last weekend i saw my first robin.................



This morning standing outside i heard - then saw - the geese returning..........


And our bags are packed 'cause we are off to the spring play party today in our Nation's Capital...

So i guess i can honestly say - Spring has arrived here in the Great White North !!!

Spring is good!! Wish we have geese here, would be nice to watch! This being unpredictable old Britain, the weather is oscillating between very nice and sunny, and wet and miserable, from one hour to the next. Very unpredictable!! We have a cold spell forcasted for next week though. =( Enjoy your play party!
