Signs of spring

Last week I saw a mourning dove building a nest in the crotch of a low tree. As I was walking to work yesterday, I saw she had finished it and begun to brood.

Crocuses? Check. Daffodils? Check!

The buds on the tulip magnolia are splitting open. A lot of trees that produce small, unassuming flowers have already bloomed.

The morning is noisy with bird calls: House finches, mourning doves, sparrows, starlings, even crows. The avian world is singing its “hey baby” song.

Temperatures reached 70F yesterday. Tomorrow is the equinox.

Happy spring!
