The vultures are nesting at work (I kid you not. Witness the photos. This has to be the worst work omen ever.). The house finches are nesting behind one of my trellises (see nest). The racoons are leaving muddly little tracks across my driveway (see pic). The "early vernal miner bees" are mining their early vernal burrows (sorry no pic yet, how about a link?) The bunnies are out, chewing the tops off of the crocusses. The dutch irises have been blooming for a week or two already, and the serbian squill is blooming itself into a brilliant blue sea.
Next up: daffodils and grape hyacinths.
