Three signs of Spring

Went out to get the mail this afternoon and there were three minature irises in bloom beside the mailbox. Later, when I let Smokey the cat out the back door, he jumped up on the narrow deck that runs along the back fence, went to his traditional summer spot beside the statue of the Hindu deity, and curled up in the sun for a nap. Finally, I looked out the window of my office and there in the neighbors' apple tree, instead of the usual crows, was a robin.

A couple hours later it was gray and rainy again, but now there's no turning back.
