… at last!
Every year we wait for the snow to start to melt in the hope that finally a Snowdrop will appear and today was the day. It might have been all alone and standing in inches of slush-filled water but a Snowdrop is a Snowdrop and this one was very welcome indeed.
Some spring birds too, putting on a display while I learn to use my new camera (Canon 7D with a 270 page user manual – it may take some time to learn all the options but this is a start. Gorgeous toy.
The American Robin is a nice bird with a jolly song but I have to say that the Common Grackle who does not have a melodious song at all is a better harbinger of spring because they really do migrate and are reliably the first back. Enjoy their colours…
