Signs of Spring on Bailey Island

I decided to find some sign of Spring to post on the blog. Trust me, I had to look hard. Yesterday, I noticed buds on my brothers lilacs. I could not quite believe it. So, today, I went to the Inn to see if the bush there had buds as well. I had to climb a huge snow bank to get to the bush, and lo and behold, BUDS!!!! I guess that is what it means to be under a "blanket of snow". I am going to take this as a good sign that Spring will indeed be here soon. As I am writing this, the clouds are rolling in and a winter storm is on the way. There is question as to how much precipitation and if we will get rain or snow. I am hoping for rain!

The sparrows are nesting in the bird houses on the Inn as well.

The bottom picture is taken from the Harpswell Town House. As you can see, there is a lot of ice in bay still.

Funny how exciting a simple bud can be. Hope all is well with all of you. Sue
