Happy Spring! (reblogged)
With the vernal equinox today comes the official beginning of spring.
We should note, however, that where I live, Spring is a short street, appropriate for what usually seems to be a short season. After all, many New Englanders even leave their furnaces running into June, at least on those cold nights.
As I ponder the amount of snow on the ground (our side yard, the one we call the Swamp, is still covered), I’m all the more grateful for those few spots that have melted clear. The ones with the snowdrop blossoms and crocus appearing.
