Things to Come

I have yet to believe the calendar: it says Spring is here but we are still buried under several feet of snow. At least the sun is shining these days, so the snow is sparkling! I came across a notebook I started keeping last Spring, to jot down the changes that always remind me of the warm weather to come:

Spring 2012
coyotes in the forest meadow, March 20
daffodils near the river, April 12
white butterflies, April 15
one last snow, April 23

So far this year we haven’t seen many hopeful signs, except the return of the Canada Geese. Last week we saw pairs of them here and there; the future parents of fuzzy, chubby little goslings. According to last year’s notes, they should be arriving in early May.
