It's the Sound of spring!
This morning when I opened my door
to retrieve the morning paper
I could hear a subtle change in the songs
the birds were singing.
You could almost tell they were celebrating
the sunshine this morning.
After several cloudy and snowy days
they were no doubt happy
to see the sun make an appearance.
If I am to be honest March is probably my least
favorite month. While our family celebrates
several birthdays and an anniversary in March
I find myself wishing we could just
fast forward to April.
I think because I am so anxious for
spring by this time, March
just seems to drag it's feet.
While I wait for the snow to melt,

I see lots of this...
which leads to this!
Now I fully understand that these conditions
have been a part of the arrival of spring,
in like forever,
but I don't like it!
And don't even get me started on the windy days,
('Windy Day' by Gilbert Stuart)
It often makes a March day feel colder than
it did in January.
I do concede that I will have to put up
with all the wind and mud if I hope to see
the greener pastures of spring,
