Ready for Spring

The lake is still frozen so it still looks wintery outside, but there are some signs of spring such as the presence of many more birds around here.

I am delighted that the swans have made an appearance, but they look awful silly standing and sitting around on the ice.

The cranes are back too. Every once in a while they will fly in, stand there on the ice, and then honk like crazy, as if they are complaining about the situation.

Hurry up, spring!
