One of the sure-fire signs of early spring around here — the Kentucky Horse Park’s annual farm-equipment auction — is this weekend. And the weathermen are promising that tomorrow will finally be both nice (i.e., dry) and warm enough to actually go out and do some yard work / gardening.

I went for a walk here at the Horse Park this afternoon (in sunshine … hooray) and what must’ve been hundreds of birds, chiefly robins and cardinals, were belting out their pretty springtime songs.

This little guy was one of many singing his heart out. (Can you see him on the fence? I couldn’t get very close before he flew away.)
