The first sign of Spring.

with one comment

In December I asked the question “What is the first sign of Christmas?”  Now I am asking; what is the first sign of spring?  March 20th is rapidly approaching (thankfully) and the end of winter in the Northern Hemisphere is within sight.  I will offer a few thoughts of my own and welcome your comments. 

  • You see a crocus peeking up from under the snow
  • You see your first Red-winged Blackbird (a true sign of spring rather than seeing your first Robin)
  • Spring training baseball games on TV
  • You look at the window and can see the grass in your lawn on a regular basis
  • The sap is running (sap for maple syrup not your neighbor in Nike’s)
  • You go to work and it is light as you leave your driveway
  • You ride home from work and it is light the entire way
  • You clean last year’s dirt off of your golf clubs in anticipation of the first round
  • You filed your tax return
  • Your favorite baseball team is undefeated and favorite player is batting .400
  • You have an unexplainable foolish feeling of optimism that your back will survive another winter of shoveling snow
  • Your thoughts to turn love, nay lust – for that new lawn mower you saw at the hardware store
  • You live in the North East Ohio snow belt, it’s almost Easter and they are calling for 3 feet of lake effect snow
  • The first day it heats up to 60 degrees and you catch a whiff of the Earth “waking up”
  • Reaping the benefits of  “springing forward” on the morning of March 14, 2010 

Have a good week and let’s look on the bright side.
