It's official!!

I don't need a calendar to tell me it's spring. Instead, I rely on these cuties:

To me, the return of the robins from the south heralds the beginning of spring. And today I saw my first ones happily chirping in the trees! Lo and behold, it also happened to be a nice, warm sunny day and to boot, the tulips were even starting to peek! JOY!

There's no pick-me-up quite like the first signs of spring, don't you think?


  1. I totally agree with you about Spring, it's such a joy seeing the bulbs popping their little heads up! Your pictures of the robin's and tulips couldn't be more beautiful, and are a perfect sign of Spring! Thanks for visiting my blog and your sweet comment! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  2. Hi;

    I live in Toronto and I saw a robin yesterday (18th). It is a definitive sign of spring for me too! I don't think that I've seen one so early.
    Dare we hope? :)

  3. I am so with you..spring is a beautiful season of renewal and gorgous things of the earth coming to life again. Love the robins..they are beauitful little creatures and of course always love to see tulip of my favorite flowers. Have a lovely weekend and thanks for visiting!

  4. The birds are exactly how I rely on spring too! There is nothing better than waking up to those cuties chirping!

    Take care,
