First Day of Spring

Happy First Day of Spring! And so far, Mother Nature is not disappointing us. The weather has been WARM (alright.....two days of 60-degree weather and now back to the 40's, but two days in a row isn't bad!). The snow is melting like crazy. I can see GRASS in front yards. In other front yards (mine) there's still a snowbank taller than the hood of my car.....but we're making progress! I wore my "spring" coat to work the other day. No mittens, no scarf. I haven't QUITE seen any buds on trees or early flowers. Not yet. But soon....right? But as all New Englanders do.....I have to pray this isn't just a tease from Mother Nature. That true spring is really here and that we aren't going to get socked by a big ice/snow/ storm in the coming weeks. It's happened before......and I wouldn't be surprised if it happens again. 11PM UPDATE ----- Just saw on the news that SNOW is coming tomorrow. Surprise!!!

We're expecting more snow...but I did hear birds chirping, see the crocus peeking out and I KNOW spring in the Rockies is unpredictable..but I am sooo ready!
