The First Full Day Of Spring

Is finally, thankfully here.  The sun is up, the sky is clear, but as I stick my nose out the door to check the air, it breaks the magical Spring spell that make up my thoughts.

It is %$#&@ COLD!

The lengthy, cold winter just doesn’t seem to want to go away, regardless of the date on the calendar.  The weather forecast is for another storm tonight, bringing rain, freezing rain and snow as the temperatures drop overnight.  I really didn’t need to hear that this morning.

As I sit with my tea looking out the front window, I surveyed the mess of our front yard.  This winter has been hard on our 50′ blue spruce.  There are large and small branches littering the ground with pine cones strewn about like confetti amongst the remaining snow piles.  It bugs me to no end seeing the lawn like that.  I like a nice, neat, orderly space (both inside and out) and not being able to tidy up the front yard until the weather warms and the snow is gone is driving me bonkers.

So I will turn my attention to the inside.  This weekend will see a warm, happy Spring chore being accomplished.  It is time to haul out all my little plant pots and big bag of seed potting mix and get to work planting seeds for my summer bounty.

If you can’t force Spring on the outside, you can at least bring it inside.
