Searching for signs of spring

We woke up to another inch of snow this morning.

Looks like the resident rabbit was out & about
hunting for more plants to nibble on in the garden.
The raised bed not ready for spring prep work yet.
Evidence of a brutal winter with gusty winds off the lake.
But this robin sitting in a crabapple tree seems to think spring is on it's way.
"Listen, can you hear it?  Spring's sweet cantata.  The strains of grass pushing through the snow.  The song of buds swelling on the vine.  The tender timpani of a baby robin's heart.  Spring.!"
