Slow spring

Spring has sure been slow in coming here.  Nothing like this, although we had a late snow on Sunday, May 2nd that didn't stick.  Our birds apparently weren't aware of the lateness and have arrived mostly on schedule. 

We've been getting Western tanagers, hanging around more than in previous years.  They've found our oranges, and have been steady customers.  We have at least two really brightly colored males.  It helps add color to our yard since flowers are having a difficult time adjusting to the yo-yo temperatures.

It's cool out there today, and there is rain in the forecast.  We could use the moisture.  I am quite ready for some warm sunny days though.
