Signs that Spring is on the doorstep.

Had to get the hand held vac to hoover up cluster flies, as there was more than the usual couple out.

I can see something outside that isn't white; it's a dirty looking colour......yep, that could be bare ground.

There are buds on the maple trees.

The lights don't need to be turned on until nearly 6pm.

HOWEVER....with the amount of snow we do have, we have bets on that it will be May before the final snow melts and our driveway is now shot ice all the way down........that is so an accident waiting to happen for me!!

I can see some grass where the snow blower has removed the snow near the front path, and the snow banks are shrinking. Some local residents have reported seen some Robins, so Spring must be just around the corner.
Daylight saving time starts on March 9th. which is also a good sign.

I can't see any signs of spring yet - I must not be looking in the right places!

The only sign I've noticed were park benches that are starting to show less snow than last week.

I can't see any signs either, but sometimes I think I can feel it!

Almost all our snow is gone...still have a big pile where the snow was pushed from our parking but I can live with that.
