Promises of spring

Posted by Dawn-Ann on February 1, 2009

Although winters in Canada are characteristically long, here in Calgary we have milder ones than most other areas besides the left coast.  Still, it’s nice to see the first hints of spring appearing, even though we likely have several more weeks of cold.

This morning my heart was warmed by the sight of a flock of little sparrows playing and scavenging for food in the back yard. While it’s true sparrows don’t go anywhere in the winter, you rarely see them all flocked together like this in the dead of winter, so I was tickled.
