A New Season
What a difference a week makes...this time last week, we were covered with gorgeous snow. Today, however, is the first unofficial day of spring no matter what the calendar may say. Here is the first of the daffodils to bloom. Tulips and hyacinths are pushing up leaves. The roses are breaking bud (and desperately need me to finish pruning them.)
Today is also the day pitchers and catchers report for spring training. The 2010 Major League Baseball season has begun. WhooHoo!
That's the true harbinger of spring, not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of a bat on a ball. ~Bill Veeck, 1976
It's a time of new beginnings, of waking up old dreams. Shake off those winters doldrums and create something wonderful today.
