When Spring Kicks In
Posted 4/18/2011 11:23:00 AM

Happy Spring! I know, it's still a little chilly outside, but there's something about this time of year that feels good. For me, spring doesn't really kick in until now, right around Patriots Day. At this point you have to figure the likelihood of snow is practically nil, the days are getting longer, the sky is brighter and the Red Sox are playing (OK, we can debate the particulars of that one, but that's for another blog!). We have the Boston Marathon, which brings a lot of excitement to our area. I'm seeing daffodils blooming, grass greening up, and new mulch being spread. We can shed our winter sweaters and coats, and start adding pastel colors to our wardrobes. I love a good spring thunderstorm, the sound of the birds singing in the morning and late afternoon, and the buds on the trees giving way to fresh, new, green leaves. You look around and see that everything in nature is in renewal. If we choose to, we can do the same. This is why spring is such a special time. So take in all this season has to offer, you'll be amazed what it can do for the soul. Happy Spring!
