Lately all I seem to hear outside is the wind howling past my door and the creaking of the trees as their bare branches knock together. This, thankfully is interrupted once in a while by the lovely soft quiet after a snow. Better even still is the rare morning when, after a bitter cold night a few brave finches and sparrows venture out to sing in the bright morning sun.
On mornings like those I can't help but get a little excited for spring, after all, it's only a month away now...
... luckily I found this great little video to tide me over. Can you hear it? That sound when winter suddenly becomes spring?... the countdown begins.
