The first sign of spring for me is when the lovely crocus wake up and reach for the sky. They bring a smile every time I see them. Winter has had us in its grip for too long. The last few days have been gorgeous! Sunny and in the high 50's and low 60's. Have my sunroof open and sunglasses on and loving the fresh air and sunshine. I will air out the house on Saturday. It is supposed to be mid 60's. I love to open all of the windows, and clean when the weather is this nice. Get rid of the stuffy winter air, you know?. It's like breathing new life into our home. Every year a coworker of mine brings me in Forsythia to force inside in February. They are such a sunny yellow and really brighten up any space. You just cut and stick in water and voila you will start to see the buds open into lime green and then bright yellow. The last image is of those lovely, highly fragranced lilacs along my driveway. They smell so good and make such pretty centerpieces. What's growing in your yard? Chubby robins are everywhere. Bird song greets you all around. It is a lovely symphony. Hope you are enjoying the nature.
