The calendar says spring arrives tomorrow but we've been enjoying spring weather for nearly two weeks. Since March 7 the temperature has been in the 60s and 70s nearly every day. The daffodils are in full bloom and grass is turning green. I am certainly not complaining about the short, mild winter. Some comments I heard at a birthday party last night were also in favor of the early arrival of the spring season.
I have often been glad I live in a place where we have four distinct seasons. Each one has its own beauty. But there is something about spring that always intrigues me no matter how many times I see it. One good rain after a few days of warm weather and the world turns emerald green overnight. It could happen any day now. The green has been gradually increasing with all these warm days but it's been dry. We could get that rain within the next 24 hours and Bing!! Everything will shoot up and we'll be in mowing season within a week or ten days.
For lo, the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtledove
is heard in our land.
