One has been calling in the valley in front of my house for ten days or two weeks now. Just heard him a minute ago. But the call is going out to nobody. No answering calls. The first pioneer, I guess. And it looks like he'll be getting snowed on for the second time tonight. Sometimes there's a price to be paid for being ahead of the game, I suppose.
I'm waiting for the marsh marigolds. That's the SURE sign of spring for me. Never seen snow or serious cold after the marigolds are up. That'll be a while, I think.
