I knew spring was coming when the "Nor'easter" we were getting last week consisted of rain and 40 to 50 degree temperatures. "Nor'easter" to me always means snow.
Then we got a warm spell. It's been at or near 70 for days.
The barberries are budding right outside the window.
I saw my first robin yesterday.
And all the neighborhood kids are out playing basketball and enjoying the sunshine.
