As it turns out, the fat robin I mentioned in my previous post sat in my tree and mocked me while the forsythia shivered and the daffodils and I cried for the two weeks following that blessed first day of spring. It was cold, gray and rainy. Almost worse than February, if that is even possible. It snowed a little on April 1st! Mother Nature's cruel prank, I suppose, but I wasn't laughing. Spring has finally shown up the past several days (thankfully!) and here are a few pictures to prove it.
