Today was cool, but bright and sunny.  The yard was full of juncos, the first we’ve seen. In my childhood they were winter birds at the feeder with the titmice and chickadees.  The first daffodils are blooming, down over the hill in the far corner of the yard.  I think I spotted the groundhog, and a doe was grazing.  All were a nice break from patching the plaster (finally – I had been procrastinating)  in the soon-to-be library.
