It’s spring!!

blooming_dogwood…that is, it’s the first day of spring for me. I’m generally not ready until May 1st because that whole March & April thing just doesn’t work for me. I need the warm sun on my face, a little chill in the breeze, the smell of dirt, and blooming flowers to believe that it’s really here. It stirs my whole being with memories of past springs and plans for this one. It was such a long wait this year but today it’s finally time to wake up from that way too long winter’s nap, time to bloom, and time for rebirth. Get your gettin’ going, examine the landscape, clean those tools, and dig in.
