The Season's First Robin

I have been looking but not expecting to see my first robin of the season. this is a personal yearly tradition, the robin, along with coltsfoot, signal the true arrival of Spring and indicate that growing season is near.

This year the snow has kept both the robin and coltsfoot at bay, but the robin has arrived beating out spring's most common early arrival coltsfoot, which is nowhere to be seen at the moment. The long, slow melt is on and the crocuses, dandelions, coltsfoot and daffodils will be emerging soon, well maybe not soon, but within two weeks, hopefully.
