Happy 1st Day of SPRING!

It's finally Spring! The weather remains chilly and damp but my mind races ahead, anticipating milder days to come. Signs of Spring are everywhere: Canada geese honk overhead, large clans of blackbirds settle momentarily in treetops like perfectly scattered flecks of burned paper, and new tips of Spring flowers shove up from the ground like antsy school children, clustered around the classroom door, waiting to be released for the day.

There are no Canada Geese or Blackbirds here yet, but I did see a Common Grackle in my yard earlier this week and that is always the first bird to return to my feeders in the spring. Next on my hoped for list will be Red-winged Blackbirds and Robins; and of course ducks too; for as soon as the rivers open up they will arrive in large numbers.

Your finished spring drawing is very lovely.
