Washington Co., WI – While temperatures may be annoyingly cool for the end of March across Washington County there are signs Mother Nature is making the turn to eventually grace us with better weather. Signs of spring are becoming more and more noticeable as the winter snow melts.
Many are gauging the arrival of spring through seasonal plants. The mighty crocus appears so waif like and yet it survives the freezing nights and to bloom the next day.
The Cooper’s Hawk was spotted by Carol in Jackson. “It was on my fence. They fly like a dart and eat little birds so not easy to get a picture,” she said.
Sandhill cranes can also be seen exploring the farm fields on Pleasant Valley Road.
Buds are starting to appear on trees and bushes and tiny green plants are pushing through to daylight. What signs of spring are you seeing?
