Spring has arrived!
How do you tell when spring is here?
Do you watch and listen for the geese overhead honking and flying north in their familiar V formation?
Do you look for that first robin of the season hopping on your front lawn looking for some food?
Do you wait for the pussy willow to bloom, one of the first to make a appearance in spring?
Do you notice daffodils and hyacinths poking their heads out of the ground too tall to pull themselves back in?
Do you notice kids and adults walking about in shorts and wearing short sleeve shirts but no jackets?
Do you notice trees sprouting their green lace before becoming completely covered in leaves?
Do you look at the calendar and notice the date is March 20?
Do you notice that at 7 PM the sun is still shining?
Do you notice different birds at the bird feeder?
How do I tell when spring is here?
I listen for the first lawn mower of the season.
(Believe it or not but yesterday as we traveled to get our shots we did see a guy out on his mower cutting the grass, or should I say stirring up the dust.)
