Spring is here.
No, not because the groundhog says so, and not because of the switch to Daylight Savings time.
This week, I spotted the first crocus and daffodils in bloom, and although the lawns here in Oregon are soggy beyond words, the grass has started greening up. It’s growing again. It’s not lawn-mower weather yet, but it’s on it’s way.
One of the things I absolutely love about Oregon is how quickly everything greens up, once mother nature waves her wand and decides it’s time for Spring. Four days ago, I spied the first daffodils in the neighborhood. Today, we’re awash in yellow.
And so it begins.
