While all caught up in moments, season’s change. We watch them through the windows of our homes, cars and places of work, but until you get outside and walk in them frequently you don’t really experience what all of the seasonal days have to offer.
Hello! Spring was aptly named-all of a sudden, one day, there it is! Plants awaken with… birds singing the praises of its arrival. Some years our spring sneaks in early, at the mercy of winter. Bulbs defiantly peak up in various yard borders, returning the favor of past work, giving a hint of color and brighter days to come. If looked at closely enough, buds appear on dormant trees showing signs of waking up, some flashing peaks of pink and white flowers. Soon these trees will make a scented canopy over some sidewalks. Lawns begin to wake up and grow erratically, with some darker green fertilized spots. Unfortunately this growth brings about the noisy season of the obnoxious grass cutting and mechanized yard maintenance machines.
i wish there was a machine-free day each week
or even better, people simply used a rake instead of a leafblower
and goats instead of lawnmowers…
We would welcome Spring here in Central Maine. Only 36 deg at 3pm. A little melting going on here but still very much winter. The woodstove pump out heat here .
