Rushing Spring, and Counting Birds

I changed my background and header in anticipation of the hopefully soon arrival of spring. At the moment, the daffodils and tulips are pushing their way through the mulch and it won’t be too many weeks before they bloom.

There are tiny little signs of growth on the weeping cherry. I hope we don’t get a hard frost that will take away the beauty of my favorite season. The reason we don’t move south. I love spring and fall in Maryland.

Right now, though, it is the Great Backyard Bird Count weekend. I am checking out my feeders and seeing if anything new shows up. I did get the massive cedar waxwing visit last week, but so far today they have not shown up at the wild crab apple trees.

There are 12 of them in this picture, although I had to zoom in quite a bit to find all of them. They were really enjoying the berries,

and the water on the driveway

I know it is spring though once the hummingbirds return, and the juncos leave. It can’t get here soon enough.
