Of course, winter is not over yet, but there is no denying that spring is in the air. Everywhere in Carroll Gardens,  one can find the first signs that the season is slowly changing.  In the neighborhood front yards, croci just started blooming,  snowdrops opened up, and the tops of daffodils are peaking out of the ground.  Just in the last day or two, the delicate yellow flowers of witch hazel have appeared.
The buds of the camellia in my own front yard are getting ready to open up. So are the buds on the magnificent magnolia at the corner of Carroll and Smith Streets.
The birds have definitely noticed the change in the air.  Their chirping has definitely gotten much louder of late. Have you noticed?

I have noticed the birds chirping, and it's a beautiful sound.
