I was laying in bed this morning, not sleeping but refusing to get out of bed when I heard it!!!!! The beautiful and greatly anticipated coo of the mourning dove.
That my friends is the best sign of Spring that I know. It was pointed out to me that Spring will be here in 12 days anyway, but as we all know Mother Nature doesn’t care about our calenders.
My Grandmother has always said “it’s not over till you hear the rain crow coo”. Over doesn’t mean that it won’t snow again, it means that the bitter cold is over…..(insert happy dance)
I think the whole country will be spending more time than usual outdoors this year. Right now we are stuck between thawing and freezing
This gives me hope, that spring will indeed come….Zia
