This may be the fastest change from winter to spring we ever saw. Of course that could change and we could experience another winter surprise...but let's hope not. I saw a flock of robins several weeks ago bopping from tree to tree in our neighborhood screaming "Whose idea was it to leave Barbados?"
But then I saw just over the weekend the red of the maple grow so fast if you blinked, you missed it. Where there was so recently diesel oil colored snow flanking the streets, tiny blue dots of wildflowers carpet the greening lawns. Incredible.
I have friends who missed this. They wintered, those little snow birds, in Florida. I grin. Me and those irritated robins.
