Signs of Spring
By Judy Reed
A week ago last Tuesday, we were hit with the second snowstorm in a week and kids all across Kent County had last Tuesday and Wednesday of school. By the weekend, however, it started warming up, and as of this past Tuesday, all of the snow was gone. Mary Lou Fuller, of Solon Township, sent us two photos showing the difference. “I thought this was quite a contrast in photos,” she said.
She took the photo of the cardinal sitting on snow-covered branches on Tuesday, March 1. The second photo, of a blooming crocus, she took on March 8. What a difference!
Our publisher, Lois Allen, spotted a robin in a local business parking lot and snapped this photo. So she gets kudos for the first robin sighting photo of the season! We know that some robins winter here, probably from further north, so it’s hard to know if it’s one that’s come back, but we choose to be optimistic and believe spring is right around the corner!
