Geese have been flying, and I have yellow daylillies blooming. Still a bit cool to let the fire go all the way out today. My yard where I seeded for grass was full of snowbirds a couple days ago, and I sure hope that doesen't mean anything. They should be gone.

Rats. Here in the North Country they are saying that we are likely to get our coldest weather of the winter in the next few weeks. Something about the jet stream and the warm water in the Pacific getting together. No daffodils here for a LONG time! :(

We have crocus blooming and the daffs ready to open. Also noticed the buds on the peach tree ready to open! Can't wait to get in the garden! A real break in the rain may be a while tho. Darlene

Yes, the early bulbs are blooming which is great. But I picked the first tick off the dog yesterday which is not so great--it's only February!

American Dippers (Cinclus mexicanus) singing in the Gulkana River. But shucks, the foolish birds do that all winter long, even at 50 below. On the other hand, our Ravens have started their courtship aerial dancing, along with their gurgling/chirping vocalizations. Always fun to hear. Boreal Owls are singing, too...only I can't find any here in the mountains. But my Fairbanks friends assure me of it there.

Here in S Michigan the geese are flying, have heard robins and also a grackle at the feeder!!!! Suppose to turn cold tomorrow, but the sugar maples are flowing and were boiling what we have. Will be awhile before the bulbs bloom here!!!! Won't be long....
