Yesterday's implication that I may have been imagining, or even fabricating the story of sighting my first Robin of the season lead to your request for photo verification of my word. So, to help induce you to believe me, I've taken a couple of pictures, and am now posting them. However, since one could easily find pictures of Robins scattered throughout the internet, I hold no expectation that this will in any way bolster your opinion of the value of my word. (The fact that they're very poor pictures might help some, though. :Hahaha: )

Aww, lucky you, Savannah. I have yet to see the first robin of spring. And if it means anything, I would have taken you on your word, Savannah. :haha:

At first I thought the top photo might be one of your neighbors in a bird suit. And I thought the second one might be Opie with a strap-on beak. But I sent the pics to the boys in the lab, and they say that they're really robins. batEyes Thanks! Great pics!

I took my camera with me when I walked the dog today, hoping to see a robin, but no such luck. No

I tried that last night, but the beak wouldn't fit. batEyes

Well, it has sure felt like spring the past couple of days, but a cold front is moving in and with the wind it will feel like it's in the teens by Friday.

It's starting to get chillier here, too - but not bad, really. It's just that it's been *so* nice the past couple of days that "average" feels chilly. It was 72 yesterday, and it's 52 today. By tomorrow it's going to be in the 30s.

Yeah, there have been years when we've had heavy snowstorms, and once even a blizzard, in April...It isn't common, but it's possible. Mostly it's the threat of frost and freezing that keeps our gardens from being planted too early, though.

Rob, I asked one of the robins to go visit you, so if he's inclined to follow instructions, maybe you'll see one soon. batEyes

Thanks!

I just checked my notes (I write everything down), and I see that, in the last six years, I saw my first robin on March 26, 28, 29, 28, 25, and April 3. So it would be unusual to see one this early. Apparently they are here, though, because a friend told me that he saw two the other day.

Wow Rob...my mom does the same thing! I thought she was the only one! grinsmiley That takes oganizational skills, something I seem to be lacking. batEyes

It's COLD here today...I want my 72 degree weather back!! This 'up and down' stuff is what always ends up making me sick too...I'm hoping that doesn't happen because I don't have time for that. Wink I've officially been hit with my seasonal allergies though...they always hit mid-March. Ugh.

Alot of people plant on Good Friday here. Does anyone else do so too? I'm not putting much out...we still may get a late frost or two. The grass is starting to grow too. We could be mowing in a few weeks. Cool

Wow, it's 15 here. It's supposed to triple in temperature, though! Triple! (Okay, so it's only supposed to get to 45 - but tripling in temperature in one day sounds so much more dramatic than a simple "We're supposed to get to 45". batEyes )

I was shocked to see that it was 16 when I checked around 9 this morning. At least the sun is shining.
