Early Signs

While hubby and I were out running Saturday errands
 I noticed several signs  . . .

What kind of signs?  Street signs -  
                                  Billboard signs -
                                  Stop Signs -
                                  Traffic signs ?

Why NO but amazing signs of SPRING !

I noticed the trees are budding . . .

I saw daffodils poking their sweet head up through winters soil.

I saw a whole yard full of crocus . . .

I saw many little robin red breasts. 
Such sweet legends about these little birds.

An old British folk tale seeks to explain the Robin's distinctive breast. Legend has it that when Jesus was dying on the cross, the Robin, then simply brown in colour, flew to his side and sang into his ear in order to comfort him in his pain. The blood from his wounds stained the Robin's breast, and thereafter all Robins got the mark of Christ's blood upon them.

Another legend reads that the robin was originally a plain, dull brown bird. Mary requested that it fan the dying embers of the fire in the stable to warm the infant Jesus. The robin got too close to the flames and singed its breast feathers but carried on fanning the embers with its wings until the fire burned strongly again, and as a mark of its diligence, all robins have since had red breasts.

I can't believe how quickly this winter has gone. Maybe it is because it was really mild.
Hardly any snow or even cold.  Compared to last year which was quite a bear. hah

Excited that daylight savings is just around the corner - March 11th.

 Spring begins Tuesday March 20th !

Welcome back - lady bugs

Welcome back - Butterflies

Welcome back - Bumblebees'

He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
Daniel 2:20-22
