A flock of cedar wax wings hung out at the back of the yard this afternoon, swooping down to feed on last years crab apples over at the neighbors. The whole flock probably numbering 30 or more. Along with the robins and the flowing rivers, providing a sure sign that spring is under way.
The precursor to sundays thunder and lighting, was the blast of hail that came through. Largest i've seen in a long time. These would hurt.
