The signs of spring are everywhere, despite the cold weather. We’ve gotten several reports of robin sightings, but Kelli Hamilton was the first person to let us know about a robin in her yard. She said she saw one in her yard on Sunday, March 10, near 16 Mile and Meyers Lake Road.
“You can see the snow in front of the photo. He landed where our septic tank is and scooped up a worm, almost instantly,” she said.
Mary Lou Fuller, who lives just south of the city in Solon Township, sent us a photo of her crocuses blooming. She has also seen robins in her yard.
Several Skunk cabbage spathes on March 3; Snowfleas on snow March 6; his first Red-winged Blackbird March 7; and three beetle larvae crawling on top of 12 inches of snow on March 7. He also said that the first pussy willows came out March 7 in his backyard at Ody Brook Sanctuary.
We would love to see your signs of spring! Send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
