Signs Of Spring

This is the day I have been waiting for for the past 68 days. At least that's when I started counting. Spring officially arrived at 10:48 pm last night and I slept right through it.

After the long, cold, snowy winter we had here Spring is here at last. You can smell spring in the air. It's just a different smell. The earth is waking up, the grass is greening and the flowers begin to shoot up from nowhere. People are more energetic. They seem to smile more.

Here's a few reasons I know spring is in the air.

The crocus are peeking their little heads through the ground. Daffodils , jonquils and narcissus begin to show their colors. Pussy willows along the creeks start to show their fuzzy faces.

Those orange traffic cones keep popping up everwhere. They seem to multiply on the roads and freeways. It's going to be a busy construction year.

Huge displays of garden seeds become abundant at grocery stores. Makes me want to plant a half acre garden.

My mailman delivered my mail wearing shorts.

I see fat little robins waddling about my yard and hear the chirping of birds in the trees.

It's the end of the sniffling and flue season. Hopefully when the winter went away, my cold will too. Its been hanging around way to long.

White shoes begin to show up in the Department stores. As long as I am buying shoes, I may as well buy a new outfit, and maybe a purse, and another hat would be nice.

There are long lines at the car washes There is nothing I like more than a sparkly clean vehicle but it seems every time i wash the truck it rains.

Snowbird friends migration begins. My friends are on the move. Moving north as the temperatures are getting warmer. That's the thing about RVing you always have a different back yard.

Sweet apple blossoms remind me of the good things in store . I think ahead and can almost smell the apple pie. It's my favorite.

32 degree weather will be gone - well almost - the weatherman is predicting freezing temperatures for the weekend.

Only 92 days till 1st day of summer. C'mon summer!!

and in the words of my father, "That's it for Today".

MY DW went out a bought flowers for our porch here at the park. She is getting in the spring mood. Yes, soon we will be able to start cooking outside again. I know that you will be glad to go a while without snow.
