This afternoon, in celebration of spring's arrival, I took a long walk. Although there was a hint of chill in the air the sun was warm and bright.
Along the way I found blooming daffodils, crocuses, and buds sprouting from all the trees. People were out walking with friends, spouses, dogs, and even cats. Actually, the cat wasn't walking; she (or he?) was being pushed in a small enclosed stroller.
The gardeners were out as well. There was mulching, weeding, and pruning going on.
And then there were the kids. The bicycles were out and the young people were rolling around town. They were also up in the trees, climbing from branch to branch as a concerned parent stood below, hands on hips, hoping there would not be a trip to the ER today.
