A touch of... can it be... spring???

The red-winged blackbirds are back, in force. The osprey swings low and hovers over the wetlands; a pair of long-necked Canada geese poke their heads up from their hidden pond to look over the reeds; and the sun warms our faces.

The snow-melt is a musical background, falling inside the downspout and running off onto the soggy grass.

I see a daffodil's leaves, and the dormant dogwood has swollen buds.
