Bread and milk for Breakfast,
A woolen frock to wear,
And a crumb for robin redbreast
on the cold days of the year.
~Christina G. Rossetti
The faithful and stout robin redbreast is the bird in our area that reappears in late January to remind us spring is just around the corner. Charlotte looked outside this afternoon and exclaimed,
"Oh, my goodness, look at all the robins!" Our yard was dotted with about one-half dozen or more. So even though spring might seem very distant with today's cold, it is on its way.
