Spring came all at once, in just one day, this year! March 1, just as though it had been written on the calendar. The great outdoors looked terrific, there was sunshine and a certain perkiness. And the moment I stepped outside, I knew!
Spring arrived overnite, no little steps, just one big leap.
The chipmunks and the birds had been trying to tell me spring was nearly here, through the sleet and cold and ice and snow last week. And then Saturday morning, it was suddenly just here.
And now, just a day later, there is fresh green in the grass, the crocus leaves have pushed up at least an inch, the finches are all over their feeder, ready to turn yellow once more.
Thank you, Spring! Just in time. Aaaaaahhhhh.
