My favorite ice cream stand has opened for the year and I partook of a hot fudge sundae - eaten in the car with the heater running of course.
The seed displays are out in the stores: the lovely packages with pictures of green lettuce and bright tomatoes and colorful zinnias beg you to pick up a pack and try, one more time, to have a green thumb!
Here in the countryside the calves and lambs are beginning to appear in the fields, and I caught a glimpse of an Amish gentleman plowing his fields with an old fashioned plow and a team of horses.
The season has finally changed at a small, local hardware store - the outdoor display of snow shovels and sleds have been replaced with buckets, spades, and tillers.
And as the seasons change, I revisit a series of blog posts and get ready for my "Spring Battles."
It is Spring and the Battle Begins Part 1 - Mice
It is Spring and the Battle Begins Part 2 - Ants
It is Spring and the Battle Begins Part 3 - Carpenter Bees
It is Spring and the Battle Begins Part 4 - Yard work
It is Spring and the Battle Begins Part 5 - Mosquitoes
May your Spring be delightful, your zucchinis abundant and your mosquitoes be few.
