Two of my favorite signs of Spring are finally showing up here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. One, salmon berry blossoms are popping out their beautiful pink-ness on the lush green trails.

The reason I love these so is that they are a sign that my other favorite beacon of Spring will soon be filling the air, the Swainson’s Thrush. I love their sweet, spiraling song.

On cold, grey days like today that could be any day between November and April, it’s nice to be reminded that yes, indeed it is in fact Spring!
