Signs of spring

Posted on May 8, 2019


Technically spring starts on March 22. That isn’t always true here in New England. We have been known to have snow then.

Finally, our spring has arrived.

Here are a few of the sights:

1. Hummingbirds.

Do you know these tiny little creatures fly all the way from Maine to South America for the winter? I am still amazed by that.

We hang a special hummingbird feeder outside our family room window and have lots of fun watching these tiny little creatures hover and eat.  The ruby-throated hummingbirds are especially colorful.

This is not to be confused with a regular pear tree. These trees actually do not produce pears. One may wonder why they are called pear trees then.

3. Magnolia tree.

I always associated magnolias with the South. But we have these pretty trees here in New England.

What spring sights do you see?
