First Signs of Spring
Daddy used to tell us the first signs of spring were when the robins showed up and when the pecan trees started to put out new growth. He always said there would not be another frost after the pecan trees did this. Well, I haven't seen a pecan tree yet, but we do have robins, by the hundreds. Everywhere you look, big fat, red breasted robins. I love it!!!!!!!! Come on spring, I'm ready.

It might be just the tiniest bit early, Sharon. The pecans are at least a month from leafing out. The azaleas have not yet started blooming.
I am torn....I want spring so I can get started on my new garden plans....but I don't want spring because summer is part of that package and I am scared of what this summer will hold.
I am like you toni.I worry about what Spring will bring .In Texas we have a saying.If you don't like the weather just waits a minute it will change.It can go from flooding to drought in a heartbeat.When it rains it pours and when it stops, buddy it stops.
Our robins appear here during winter and tend to almost disappear in spring. We don't have pecan trees either but I am already seeing lots of signs that spring is about to happen.
Oh Jan, don't spoil my fun, I know we have a while yet, I am just gearing UP!!!!!!!! LOL
