Spring is in the air

18 Apr

Yesterday, when it rained, it didn’t chill me to my bones. Yes,it was damp, but it was a warm, April rain.

I’ve noted the change coming. For the last few weeks, when I arrive at school, I have been greeted by birdsong. That doesn’t happen in Winter and it warms my heart to hear it.

A lot of other things don’t happen in Winter, either.

I am sleeping with a window open regularly.

I  turn the heat up to take the chill out of the house in the morning, but rarely run it the rest of the day.

I consider NOT wearing tights with a skirt.

I choose a light sweater, rather than a heavy one, knowing it will likely travel home in my school bag.

What are your harbingers of Spring?

    Just beginning spring here in norther NH. A few crocuses up along with the green tips of the daffodils.

    We look forward to the birds that we only see when they are traveling from one destination to another. And let’s not forget the sound of the first lawn mower of the season. 🙂

      That usually comes very early on a weekend morning!

    Love sleeping with windows open, wearing a light jacket or sweater, watching birds going into our birdhouses to build nests, enjoying the blooms on the apple, crab apple, and cherry trees. Welcome, Spring!

    We’ve had such an odd winter that spring has continually been “round the corner”. I guess the biggest change is when the tiny crocus appear. Now there are many other things blooming, but the crocus always poke up to say hello very early, even last through snow. Thanks, Adrienne, a spring celebration.

    Right from the first sentence, I like this litany of noticing. I’ve been smelling spring’s signals: wet greenery, the cloying aroma of flowering trees. My ears have also tuned in the sniffles of allergic students!
