Three Signs of Spring

We saw a Bald Eagle the other day, the first sighting this winter/spring.  The streams and little creeks that have water flowing are opening up. 

The second sign is the chairs that have been delivered to Ace Hardware.  Spring colors for sure.

Looks to me like there are a few more colors in the back too… yellow for sure!  They should have the best selection of colorful chairs around!

The third sign of spring was a dead skunk at the side of the road, they have come out to be lovey dovey and one apparently didn’t look both ways before crossing the road for a rendezvous with his sweetheart.  Stricken down during his quest, either that or it was a suicidal skunk. Whatever he is now what I call “a very good skunk.”

  1. You are so funny in your description of the dead skunk's last thoughts. I guess it didn't have time to smell up the highway. :-)

  5. Great marketing to sell such colorful chairs in snow country when everyone is craving warmer weather and more color to winter's drab color scheme.

  8. Our school orders plastic chairs to go around tables and they bought lavendar, light blue and dark blue. It really is a nice change of the standard orange and dark blue. We are seeing raccoons , opossums, all along the roads everywhere and I did see one skunk that was also hit by a car.

  9. Opossums are the suicide animal/not looking before they cross the road victims around here. Very rarely see a dead skunk, although we do smell them occasionally. Those chairs are very colourful, white ones would have no appeal at all for you right now:)

  15. There's a dead coon in the ditch near our mailbox. Going to be hard for the buzzards to get that one.

    Stay warm! Your snow should be melting soon. We've started mowing...

  16. We're enjoying temperatures in the 70s now and will try to send some your way. We are also experiencing though not enjoying dead skunks along the bi-wsys. I'm sure you don't need more of those sent your way.

  20. Yep, skunk smell or sighting was always my sure sign of Spring. For some reason they used to spray my foundation and it would seep through and come up through the furnace with that wonderful odiferous odor. Enough to wake you up in the middle of the night!

  21. Oh, don't say that! I had a pet skunk when I was a kid and he was sweet, lovey, and wonderful!! De-scented and neutered--and just wonderful!!
