As the Hellebore peeked from the window box into the front room, I could see that the First Day of Spring looked promising!
I had noticed that the rose garden in town had been recently pruned, so off I went to prune mine. I also picked up evergreen branches, and raked up the front yard to celebrate the day.
A little Townsend's Warbler arrived once I'd finished and sat on a branch for the longest time as if it was taking note of the tidier lawn. Meanwhile a Robin serenaded from an overhead wire, which has been somewhat doctored for the occasion ;)
I was hoping for a colorful sunset as I set off for my walk to see how Harzel was doing.
Although it started to drizzle, the evening held some interesting silhouettes.
I was delighted to find Harzel sprouting leaves!
A cottontail bunny hopped out of the copse beside Harzel and down the trail he went. My photo didn't turn out well, though, as it made me jump!
Once I arrived back home, beautiful bird song was playing in my garden. I will try and download a short video later so it can be heard.
A great First Day of Spring!
