A Robin on a Spring Day. Doesn’t look much like spring, does it? It’s April 16 and mother nature is delivering a sleety, snowy, nasty weather mix that has me dragging my feet heading out the door. And, today of all days, there is a ubiquitous sign of spring – a lone robin loitering in the drive. The first robin I’ve seen at our house this season. A hopeful sign of better things to come!
