Waiting...

Mostly it's quiet here as I wait for signs of Spring...

but there's been Red-Wings and Grackles the last few days...

(still no Phoebe or Plover)

but I've not been properly out, yet...

(soon!)

Winter ducks seem mostly gone from the places I know...

Instead there's this:

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

There were a couple minutes at lunch when I closed my eyes and imagined it July. That felt nice (and especially warm!)

I'm still waiting for a day to inspire Spring-fever in me...

Spring will be here in a flash - maybe, hopefully and then it will get hot and we will be looking for what we have now. Birds are on their way.

I like your Dickens quote. I was walking about downtown over the weekend and when I was in the sun it was wonderful; when I was in the shade of the buildings, it was still winter.

Well, today is such a day here in central PA.
Hope the same is true for NJ. Temps in the mid-60s.

Nice Dickens quote, and it's definitely like that here in State College PA, as Donna indicated. We've had nothing but beautiful sunny days since I got back--I brought the spring with me from Texas!

It's what my daughter said to me yesterday when she came home from school (while I was cutting everything back and doing way too much in the garden). Warm in the sun, cold in the shade.
