 I had hope that Spring might be on the way when I spotted this Robin in the backyard, but, of course, we got more snow.

Visited the Norwalk Maritime Center to get out of the snow for a while.

Of course, more snow fell &  the birds came looking for hand-outs!

But at least I had flowers blooming inside. :)

And, of course more snow yesterday & today!

Hope March will bring Spring weather & we can finally get the mountain of snow to melt!  Have fun!
