I saw a flicker the other morning doing drum solo's to impress the girls. Clever lad was drumming on the metal cap over a telephone pole and getting much more volume for his effort than he would have on on plain wood.

The male cardinals around here are getting progressively redder.

The past few mornings I have seen cherry blossoms starting to pink the trees.

Don't eat pink snow.
Or yellow snow.
The pink is caused by an algae that flourishes once the weather starts to warm a bit. Still mid 20 celsius down here. Still enjoying the last few weeks summer Barbies and Beer.

20 cels.? Summer! Vancouver has 14 cels. I just heard while watching Olympics. So Zeds cherry blossom may give it a first try.

Yes it really is cherry trees starting to bloom. Crocuses are in full bloom and the daffs won't be too long.
