Today, as I sit near the window, I can see the birds working the feeders quite happily. And the grey and red squirrels are out - not too odd. The chipmunks have been out and about for at least the last three weeks - a bit early for around here. This morning, my husband said the daffodils in the side bed were starting to sprout. Too early for this part of the world. Maybe, just maybe, we can get an early garden in this year. Just trying to find the bright spot in global warming!!
