Pam Whitmore of Buckingham (north of Traer in Tama county) sent me these pictures of spring at her house this morning. Well, a version of spring anyway.
One of Pam's robins on the heated birdbath with four Cedar Waxwings waiting their turn.
A couple of robins checking out the spa.
Pam said there were at least six robins at one time and several of the waxwings.
Pam, tell them they can come to my place…. although, I do have my own sign of spring…
Daffodils poking their tips out. I told them they are welcome, but they are a little early....
Either the bulbs' babies have moved closer to the house, or the chokeberry is getting bigger. Or both.
These are hardy little buggers. These bleeding hearts are coming up on the north side of the house already. I hope the leaves are enough to protect them the rest of the winter!
Fortunately, it looks like there will be more and more of these signs of spring. So enjoy!
