They're back!! Local robins must be governed by the movement of the sun rather than by temperature because Ontario has been very cold lately yet this one (and about six or eight of its friends) were eating frozen apples here last weekend. It's great to see the robins as now I KNOW spring is near. (A few robins stay north of Lake Ontario in winter, but I rarely see them in East Gwillimbury.)
Moving clockwise, seed heads on cattails look rather matted; BLUE sky but no buds bursting on the willows yet; frozen wild grapes still on a vine; icicles on another grapevine; and proof that we had a visitor in the night - a raccoon who caused no damage because everything was locked in the garage.
