Yes!  Robins arrived in our yard today!  How perfect on
the first day of spring.  Every year we put our Christmas tree in
the backyard, and Steven fills it with birdseed.  That way when he
works at home, he can always see birds flying in and out of the
tree.  I know!  It's the first day of spring, but to be fair
there is still snow on the ground, and it did snow a little

At any rate the tree will come down this weekend, but the birds
will miss it.  And apparently a pair of newcomers to town
found it this morning, and said -- "what a good idea!" in Robin
talk.  Of course this made Steven so happy that he hadn't taken
the tree (quite brown now) down. Plus in this part of the
world the Robins arrival is a sure fire beacon of spring!

Happy Spring!
