    Thumbs up Spring

    We have crocuses, well the neighbors do, the squirrels ate all ours.


    Yesterday I saw my first Red-winged blackbird. I do not know where they go for the winter, but it is NOT here.


    The daffodils are just sprouting and are up about an inch. We shall have flowers in about 3 weeks.


    And in April as sure as the sun will shine, we will have my favorite spring flower, the tulip.


    Hang in there everyone!!!

    Here in western Massachusetts I usually see my first robin sometime in March. But I saw one this past Monday! Very encouraging!! I am jealous of your (neighbor's) crocuses, though...

    We love the red winged black birds in our yard.

    In contrast , to Andrea's above, this Trupial was always in the tree outside our room at the Tamarijn. You can click on the thumbnail for a larger pic.


    A great website http://www.arubabirds.com/
