looking for Spring near Rice Creek, Anoka County, MN

With the temp over 40, I decided to walk to Rice Creek -- about 1 mi. from home -- to look for signs of spring. What did I find? Melting snow. We've lost about a foot of snow in the last week. 
The Creek is beginning to open up. Another sign of spring? Garbage that has been thrown into the snow banks over the winter. On a positive note, Chickadees with their Spring call.

It's heading in the right direction, but it's not Spring yet. I guess I have to keep looking.
These photos were taken with my iPhone. I love this camera more & more.
