Oh yes - the signs are there - robins have returned in mass, daffodils and grape hyacinths are up, the daphne is almost in bloom, our arthritic hazelnut tree has its catkins elongating and flowers blooming, the lords and ladies are up, and we've been pruning our orchard during the sun breaks. Unfortunately the pollen count is also up, but I can ignore that if I try real hard.
Being further north I imagine you are a bit behind us. You might even be at a higher elevation too - we're at about 700 feet.
Hang in there - it's coming.
