Yes, Spring!

This week, our temperatures have started moving step by step from the low 40s toward the 50s! Because of the time change, it is even light in the evening, and we went for a walk after dinner last night and I didn’t need gloves or a scarf. Auntie Bridgett even wore her sunglasses.

And just as I am getting more confident in the warmth, so are the flowers. Crocus, jonquils, and even some trees are budding. I keep waiting for Willie, the baby dawn redwood that was planted in Laurelhurst Park, to sprout his first new leaves.

And, yes, romance is in the air on Firwood Lake. Robins and ducks are chasing each other around, flapping and acting like misguided missiles. We keep creating dialogue for them…

“Edna! I love you!”

“Leave me alone, Sheldon, for goodness sakes!”

“But I love you!”

“Stop splashing me, Sheldon!”

I hope the weather stays nice and warm for this weekend, so we can all have some adventures while you are in town.
