Signs of the Season

While eating dinner this evening I noticed a grackle singing from the top of an oak tree, my first grackle for the season.  Deciding to take a short sundown stroll after the dishes were done I checked our flowerbeds and found the daffodils just beginning to poke their heads above the soil. 

As my wife and I strolled along we noticed two robins hunting worms along side of our garden, another first for the year.  The sunset this evening was one certainly worth savoring.

The honking of migrating Canada Geese drew our attention to the western sky.  The dark silhouettes moving rapidly across the colorful evening sky vividly tells the story of the changing of the seasons.

Beautiful. And, a walk with your wife was surely a wonderful way to spend the evening. :)

Great change discoveries and a perfect end to the day.
Here we have quite suddenly dropped like a stone into autumn. 35C one day, 16C the next and botheration, all our joints are aching, that I call a sure sign of seasonal change.

Like you Coy, we got our first grackle and the daffodils are poking out of the ground about an inch or two. The times are changing and boy I am looking forward to warmer weather. Your photos are beautiful.

I'll have to check my flower beds and see if there is any hint of green just yet. I'm trying to be hopeful.
