The Earth is waking up, again. Migration has begun. Birds I have not seen in awhile are back at the feeders. I am hearing bird calls that I haven't heard for months. Sparrows have moved back into the bird house to begin nesting. Squirrels, chipmunks, and other critters are all on the move, too. I saw an opossum climbing over a snow bank as the snow was melting. It's all very exciting to me.
I know that "meteorological spring" started on March 1st. Yet, the calendar says Spring begins March 20th. We all know that humans are all too often wrong. Personally, I let Nature tell me important things like the weather and seasons. Mother Nature always gets it right.
