First crocus is gold

Golden crocus opening

Here it is, the first crocus of the year. As always a sturdy little yellow one. And I saw other signs of spring today. I went for a walk and saw lots of robins milling about amid the starlings. I went for a drive and saw lots of hawks circling the sky and brooding in trees. The sparrows went somewhere where they seem to be finding lots of other food that is not in the nearly untouched feeders.  The equinox is just a couple weeks away.

But I’m still not so sure about spring: we could still get a blizzard.
