Update on spring? We have it reversed. All's is a month late. I see Vancouver every day but the artificial snowy part of it. Only blackbird is on scedule. Sitting on the windowsill in the morning, making reservations for the backyard food court.

Backyard food court? Sounds like you've made use of a new
term! Cute. My back yard food court is eating me out of
house and home. Still up to 20 inches of ice all over, and
the temps have been close to 0 all week during the night.
Did see geese flying north the other day, however. Only one
"V" so far, but that is better than nothing.

Still winter. A couple tulips poked through before rabbits
ate them. Am now at war with the critters.

Snow forecast for the weekend again. Global warming????
El Nino???

Absolutely beautiful. Deep purple crocus. I have a light
lavender one in bloom. Well, yesterday it was in bloom, closed
up tight today: snowing again. Beautiful picture.

Yesterday just before dark I spotted the first two bats. Never before I saw them this early as they usually only come after a real hot summer's day.

I have some tulips and now hyacinth poking through, but the
temps were below freezing last night. It's taking a slow
entry, this year's Spring, is.

"I sawr a behd turday."

Hmm, /ʔaɪsɔːɹəbɜːd/. I understand the intrusive-r pronunciation up to the final word. Is the r intrusive, as Sir Michael Redgrave used to admonish his moppets not to pronounce, or does it somehow represent the schwa of the usual pronunciation of today /tə'deɪ/. I understand the intrusive-r to occur at the end of syllables when the next syllable starts with a vowel. YMMV.

OTOH, lovely Amsel (Turdus merula), though.
