Spring has most definitely sprung...
I knew it was spring, when I cleaned out my birdbath for the first time for the season, on the weekend, and within minutes, a big fat robin, proceeded to dive in, and just sit there. No usual robin splashing, he just sat there. He looked quite relaxed and at home, kind of letting me know that he had been waiting for me to clean it.
Today was one of those gorgeous days, we usually don't get till late May, and here it is March 20, the first day of spring, and it was glorious, at a balmy 72˚ at its peak. All day at work I thought I'm going for a walk tonight. I wanted to extend this lovely day, and really enjoy it.
As soon as I got home, I fed the girls and then donned my running, ok now walking togs. On my route I saw further signs, that seasons are coming faster. I saw an earwig crawling across the sidewalk, really, an earwig, tulips popping up in numerous gardens, I even had buds on my roses, the local golf course looked spruced up like they may be ready for business soon, squirrels were frolicking, red wing blackbirds were singing and I was overdressed. I popped in to my local coffee shop at my turnaround point and topped up my water bottle and enjoyed the sun lowering on this fine day.
I do love spring.
