Yesterday was the first day of Spring. Gray whales are back, feeding on the side of our island. Trees are blooming, my weeds are back to growing. Dog and horse are shedding. Little J is going to bed a bit later. The day is longer. I am nervous about wearing short sleeves.
I think there is no going back. Even here in the Pacific NorthWest there is hope that winter is coming to an end. I for one am ready. Bring it on!
Little J’s friend C came to visit yesterday. He told me this morning: Mommy, she told me it was the first day of spring. I told her she was wrong. It was the last day of winter.
