One week past the vernal equinox I'm starting to see signs that it might actually be Spring:
- Yesterday morning I went out to get the newspaper and heard the early morning bird chorus for the first time in months.
- The natural areas and parks have swaths of spring beauty wildflowers, and yesterday I saw a dandelion in bloom.
- The sedum on the retaining wall across the street from our condo building is turning green.
- On the way to the gym today I noticed that the bush honeysuckle (an invasive plant which is the first to green up in the spring) was covered with tiny leaves.
