Sunny 47F degrees in northeastern Illinois today

.

I tried for some photos of robins today but failed on each attempt. There must have been close to a dozen of them flitting around the yard today. A number of robins overwinter in the area so it is common to see them this time of year; still, I find their visits do cheer me up.

Greetings from Texas,
The good news - the trees are trying to bud.

The bad news - we know the cold weather isn't done yet. Still, that and the 50's degree weather today was nice.

Please don't let the pear trees bud yet!!!
Love the warm weather. Kids, grandkids and friends spent hours at the shooting range. Art would have been with them if he hadn't felt "puny". Grandkids are good shots at 8 and 12. All that practice as an extended family really pays off.

The forsythias will be the first to flower here... followed by the dogwoods... (I think)

Looking forward to some spring colors!
