    This year we have not even had winter… 7 centigrades warmer than normal… wonder how it will feel when spring finally comes.

      I think down South here we will have a hellish summer, although it is cool now – high of 47F today. Not much cooler tonight though. Still, when you hear the peepers calling and smell the new grass, it speaks of spring.

    Today seems to have the feel of Spring. I’m watching for daffodils, the first bright kiss of Spring in my world.

    Lovely! Our daffodils started popping up two weeks ago.

    New grass and peepers – delicate and fresh, Toni! We have a garden full of snowdrops and daffodils at the moment, as well as a variety of birds. A hopeful season..

    I am so very fond of Ginsberg’s American Sentences. This is a lovely and perky one; thanks.

    You have such a real sensibility… You never fail to disappoint, when I come here – seemingly effortlessly able to always capture what you are aiming for… Terrific!

    I hadn’t heard of Peepers and had to look them up. They are so tiny, evidently about 1 inch. They must sound beautiful 🙂

    Spring sounds! Last years frogs were swimming happily in the stream here until the storms started a few days ago. Now the stream is such a torrent, I have no idea what will have happened to them. I suppose nature has a Plan B.
