I KNOW ITS SPRING WHEN.....
......the Canada Geese start pairing up an d defending their territory. One pair regularly nests on an island in the lake, and another in the garden of a house by the lake. They are terrific parents, and we have seen several families of 3, 4 or 5 grow up.
Its also Spring when the little green tufts appear on the larch trees. I love them when they are just coming out, it is such a fresh green. They also turn a bright glowing orange in the autumn, but that is a long way away!
I had some beautiful crocuses in the garden, but four large furry paws have walked on them. (sigh) Still, there are some he has missed and I can enjoy those!
