Last week I saw a flock of Meadow Larks, been seeing Bluebirds paired up & now this:

Snow Geese by the thousands! These were on a lake about 1/2 mile from our house, just a constant roar around 7 this morning. Some of them flew over our house around 10 this morning, "V's" flying all directions. A little earlier than usual this year. ~~ Lowell

My peach trees are blooming!  I'm not sure I've seen anything else just yet, but any day.  Maybe if I can get out when all this rainy weather  is done I'll see more.

  At 5800ft we have to wait a mite longer for spring. I have plenty of outdoor projects planned for spring and summer.

I hope its not far away!  I'm infected with spring fever.

 

My apple tree had some buds... but that creature better stay in hibernation for a little while yet in case we get a cold snap!  I lost the apples last year due to a frost.

Wish we had a winter. Grass is green but still dormant (no mowing yet) and still BBQing into the evening.

Well I never count on anything until after Apil 15th.  They are predicting a winter storm late next week, but admit it could track north or south of us.

Saw a few flurries in Des Moines THURSDAY and when I got home the ground was white?

Spring?  What is this "Spring thing" that you speak of? :tapping_fingers:

 

These were taken on my front porch about 15 minutes or so ago:

Thanks for the pictures.  The snow geese do not reside around our flooding in the summer but we do usually see them once or twice a year on the way north or south.  We do however get lots and lots of Canadian Geese and quite a few pairs of Mute Swans.  Will be awhile for our spring, our water is still pretty hard and thick around here.

We had an inch of snow on the ground this morning. That's all of that stuff I care to see.

Woke up and found between 2 and 3 inches of snow on the ground here.  Just disced my garden to do weed control last weekend.  I'll go to the local seed store(Southern States) when I'm ready to plant.  I have also had to move from store to store since I started gardening 12 years ago.  The old hardware stores that carried seeds went out of business, then I'd find another, use it a few years, then it would be gone.  However, before I plant, I'm thinking I want to plow more mulch into the garden, which means I need to get mulch, which takes time.
