I celebrated the first day of Spring today. I’m quite aware that it’s not the “official” start of the season as dictated by the calendar.
In my mind, it’s not Spring until a few things happen.
First, I need to see some weeds growing in my yard. This morning I plucked a few dandelions.
The weather needs to cooperate too. If it’s too cold for shorts, then it’s still winter.
Finally, I need some kind of sign or message that wraps it all up with a bow.
I found it in this sidewalk art. This welcome mat for the new season makes it real for me.
