I saw my first Robin of the season, and heard many more chirping! Red Wing Black birds have been here for a while too. I'm afraid they might get a bit cold before the worms show up, but I saw many flying insects today in the 60 degree weather.

That's great Tom, hopefully spring is on it's way. I haven't seen any Robin's yet just a few Red-winged Blackbirds and they didn't stick around too long.... still too darn cold here!!!

The Killdeer are back too, and we have about 4 days in a row with no frost predicted. Rain and in the 60's for Monday, that should get the grass growing. Oh yes, and the insects are flying around.

My apricot trees are in full bloom. This may be a year with no fruit, unless this crazy warm weather continues without any reversions back to typical March weather. My Stella cherry buds are getting ready to open, and my Contender peach is about a week off. Oh my!

That's great Caroline, I saw the first one on Saturday, it didn't hang around too long, it probably headed to Kamloops where it's warmer. Hilarious!
