We even saw a weasel, although I think it's still a bit early for this critter to be out and about--I wonder what woke him up? With temps above freezing during the day, I noticed today that the Forsythia is also starting to bud.
Another signal of spring is that Charlie, our Wheaten Terrier went today for his "spring-do." I always think I like the shaggy-dog look best, but then he comes back from the groomer and I can see his eyes, and then I think I like that look best!
Unfortunately the warmer temps have also brought out of their winter hiding places the "stink-bugs" that we were bombarded with last fall. The ones that found their way inside are now appearing on the floor, the counters, the furniture and even on Carl's painting...Bugs make me a bit squeamish; but I am proud to say that I am picking some of them up and putting them outside--They hate the cold but the birds really love them and have been coming onto the front porch looking for ones we have tossed out. By the way, the ones that don't get picked up, vacuumed or tossed out the door sometimes get eaten by our boy Maguire--I guess they are an acquired taste, none of the other dogs seem to want to sample them! Whatever March brings, I'm glad that at the start of it, there are a few signs of spring!
