Happy first day of spring!
This past weekend our crab apple trees were invaded by masses of cedar waxwing birds and one lone robin. The waxwings over-indulged on the apples and sure enough, by the end of the day they were drunk on fermentation and banging into our windows.
The robin, well behaved as he was, was my first spotting of this loyal indicator of spring. And true to tradition, he’s brought one last snowstorm (at least).
Anyways, it’s the first day of spring and here are some delightful links for the season:
- This Chalk Guy is popping up all over the web. His work is truly amazing!
- Why spring came a day early this year? Think vernal equinox and other science-geeky things.
- In spite of the snow and cold, I’ve been hearing songbirds I haven’t heard in months.
- All you need to know about gardening: Here at Seed Savers’ free webinars.
Happy Vernal Equinox!
