It is Spring. I think.

The signs of Spring are all around us - it's just that the weather isn't cooperating!


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.
