Friday Fun: Spring has Sprung!

Today is the official first day of spring, and though it’s a little on the chilly side (about 34°F right now), the abundance of sunshine more than makes up for the low temperature. It looks like springtime. The sky is a pure, bright blue. The grass looks greener, the trees are budding, and the first spring bulbs are starting to come up. My neighbor’s crocuses are actually blooming already, and I admire their perky optimism.

I’ve always loved springtime, but this year in particular I find the sure progress of the seasons to be extremely reassuring. Spring represents a triumph over winter’s blahs, as well as new life and endless opportunities. A month ago, it felt like we’d never get warm or see the grass again, but in a “this too shall pass” kind of way spring has sprung and anything seems possible.

My favorite time of the year is spring and summer. However, it is still way too cold. I long for the 70 degree days. Soon I hope soon.
