Here we are mid February and all the leaves and blossoms are just waiting to burst forth.
I have to laugh any time I see a robin now. In the last two weeks there have been tons of them mobbing the parking lot at my work. Every morning when I get there, it's like some Alfred Hitchcock situation. They are stripping the last of the winter berries off the bushes and making quite a mess of all the cars while they're at it. Really earning their nickname of sh*tbirds.
