Spring in rural southwestern Ontario

Here in Woodstock we have many of the trappings of a small city (population approximately 34,000) - a hospital, a library, industry etc. However, you don't have to go far to remember that we're in the heart of farm county, especially this time of year. In the photo above it's becoming obvious that it will soon be time to take down the bit of snow fencing in this farm field near Thamesford.
Someone out for a Sunday drive?

Can you spot the Robin hiding behind the garden debris?
It was great to see the sun shining this weekend. It almost made me forget that my nose is still running, I'm still wheezing and - apparently - I'm still complaining!

  1. How nice to see bare ground and greenish grass. We have such a looooong way to go and the robins wouldn't dare show up yet.
