Snow Crocus

The days are getting longer…  Green shoots are coming out of the ground.  It is fun to step out into the yard and see a flower blooming at the end of February.

All over the yard daffodil shoots are coming up.  These ones near the north side of the house are the tallest.

I hear new bird calls in the yard each day, and sometimes I don’t recognize the calls.  This week I noticed these birds in the yard: robins, cardinals, black-capped chickadees, mourning doves, and even a white breasted nuthatch, which I could not get a good picture of for this post.  The sandhill cranes continue to fly north over our neighborhood.
