Looks like winter… sounds like spring…

It may not look or feel like spring, but it certainly sounds like spring. There is still snow on the ground and the temperature has been hovering around 30 degrees when Lilly and I walk in the morning. The past couple of days, however, it has been noisy… during winter it is quiet. Sure there is the occasional car or mooing cow. One sure sign that spring is on the horizon is when the birds start singing. Last week there were a couple of birds singing, but the last two days it has been a cacophony.
