Happy March 1st

I don't know if January or February is my least favorite month.  But good riddance, both are gone.  March 2011 came in like a lamb; it was a pretty and relatively mild day after a lot of rain yesterday.

Throughout the Lehigh Valley and even north of the Kittatinny Ridge, large flocks of snow geese were flying today.  I also saw a few larger groups of Robins (10 or so) on the now-exposed lawns and one flock of blackbirds (although I couldn’t tell which types were in the mix since I was driving).

The ice on the local ponds is receding and it won’t  be long until we see the flower buds on spicebush.
