Several years ago, I noticed that the Mourning Doves begin cooing in February around the same time the snowdrops show up in my garden. Ever since then, I enjoy listening for them each morning in February. A few days ago, hubby told me he heard one before I did and later that day I heard one and smiled. Soon the skunk cabbage, winter aconite, and speedwell will appear as well. What are some first signs of spring that you look forward to?
