Spring and Winter seem to be playing a cruel game of cat and mouse with most of us here in the States. We get a few days of warm spring weather and then, bam, winter blows back in to freeze our buds off. At this rate, we'll go right into Summer, and that will stink as I'm not a fan of the heat.
For now, though I'll enjoy Spring where I find it. In the bulbs that are sprouting along my front steps, and rethinking doing so, I'm sure. In the barest buds on the trees. In the birds that I hear and see busily flitting from tree to tree, who are probably checking their planners and wondering how they got their migration dates wrong. I'll also find it in the papers I'm using - the bright colorful, floral graphic filled papers that are more consistently Spring than what's going on outside my window.
