Spring’s back

Spring’s back.It can’t be denied!

It’s not because temps are rising and early bulbs are above ground and blooming. It’s not the catkins out and imitating the special early greenish yellow tiny buds of leaves. It’s not even the silhouettes of white egrets walking about in ditches and ponds imitating ballet dancers.

It’s storks suddenly back from spending the winter in Africa.Last year, all of a sudden they were gone. Now, all of a sudden, they’re back.

Yesterday, I spotted a few looking down from a nest high in a tree and a nest on a special long pole. They looked rather disorientated. I had to blink twice, but thought: uhm – black and white outfit and up in such nests? I wasn’t sure though. It was from quite a distance.

Now I am. Today, I saw at least four prancing sedately through fields they shared with sheep, silly lambs, a couple of cows. Not just that black and white out fit, but large orange bills and legs. Yes, they’re back from Africa!

And I’m sure. I’m 100% certain.
We are heading towards spring!
