With the harsh weather that’s covered much of the mid-Atlantic this winter thoughts of spring might seem like an impractical idea. Spring break will be happening soon.
Here it is February. I noticed crocus leaves have spiked through the frozen ground and swollen buds are showing on the limbs of trees. Even the cardinals, one of the most colorful and abundant backyard birds has awakened. Although their feathers are not as colorful presently, come early spring they will display their full mating suit of feathers as seen in this picture I shot in early spring last year. This is the time the master artist displays His rainbow of colors.
