The sun is out today and above freezing!  Progress that is.
AND I spied a small flock of Red Robins!  They are early I believe,
Good news to me for Spring surly must be arriving ahead of schedule!
Oh Pretty please!

THE ROBIN is the one
That interrupts the morn
With hurried, few, express reports
When March is scarcely on.
The robin is the one
That overflows the noon
With her cherubic quantity,
An April but begun.
The robin is the one
That speechless from her nest       
Submits that home and certainty
And sanctity are best.

~ Emily Dickinson ~

May the sun be shining down upon you today!

Hugs, Mary

Hi sweet friend....I always like looking for the first Robin of the year...I did spot a few in very early in the year. I think they stay all year round now.

Sending you sunshine is wet...foggy and cold here...guess I will have to make my own sunshine today. xoxoxo

Lovely post, sweet Mary. We do have quite some sunshine, it still is rather cold though. But I thought about sitting outside, wearing my cozy coat, and read my favorite magazine. A huge mug of hot tea will keep me warm.
Have a HaPpy haPpY weekend, may we both feel the sun on our faces (how I love that feeling!) xxxx
