Another Sign of Spring

Every day is another day closer to Spring. And every day I keep watch for signs and portents that it is indeed on the way. Let me count the ways.

  • The days are longer. Happens every year, and by now - 44 days after the solstice - all those additional seconds are adding up.

  • This year there are even flowers in the garden, snowdrops and hellebores in bloom.

  • There's no snow. Well, that's no surprise because this year we haven't gotten but one whiten the ground event.

  • My neighbor's sheep are lambing.

    They're very sweet. Clean and white. Bouncy. This ewe has twins. What do you think - shall we add them to the tally for Spring?
