March is making up for sunny January

It just won't stop snowing and raining here. The little kale and broccoli sprouts that I planted so hopefully in the January's warmth, sprouted and now are shivering in icy rain and snow. In California we're not supposed to complain about this as come summer we will be so grateful for full aquafers, but it's hard to take in March when you're itching to get into the garden and one look outside tells you to forget it.

I watched a small finch, I couldn't see what species, in the bare oak tree, hunched and shivering in the icy rain. Many of the robins have come back and smaller species can be seen flying by the windows every day, but it is not the best weather to welcome them. However this bird book by Rodale, cheered me up with pictures of orioles and grossbeaks and suggestions about how to attract specific species of birds into your yard and garden. So even if I can't get out into the garden, I can plan and dream.
