Finally, something bloomed. Forsythia, always the first flower of spring (not counting crocus). Oddly, our enormous forsythia hedge in the backyard which we cut down last year doesn’t look like it is planning to bloom this year at all. But I had to cut it down. It was huge and taking up half the yard.
It stopped raining briefly, so I went out and took a few pictures. The Brown-headed Cowbirds are just a little added extra.
