Spring Has Sprung

Signs that spring has really truly arrived:

  • The heat’s turned off.
  • We had our first lawn treatment of this year yesterday.
  • I’m planning on walking to do my errands today.
  • There are robins sitting on the fence out back.
  • There’s green poking up from my gardens.
  • We can hear the loud neighbourhood mom out on the street with her kids.
  • Neighbourhood cats have returned to use my vegetable garden as a great big al fresco litter box.
  • The day care parade of toddlers has started to walk by.
  • Ugly bugs have started to come out of hibernation.
  • We have a bunch of windows wide open.

Updated to add:

  • It’s too warm to wear a jacket. I went to the store wearing a fleece over my t-shirt and I was melting!

  1. Oh, that sounds nice. We have one out of ten on your list but that has been happening all winter. The neighbors cats have been here all winter because we have mulch on the flower beds.I can’t wait for the rest of your list to hit Nova Scotia.

  2. Um. I could have written your list ysterday. But now, thanks to the vagaries of Calgary weather, I’m going to have to shovel my sidewalks.

    Stupid weather.

  3. If it helps hurry spring along at all, here in Nova Scotia my crocuses are gently, shyly pushing their heads up with wonderful golden yellows and various shades of purples. It’s a yearly miracle that brings a big smile to my face. I know spring must be close behind.

  4. It was so hot today. I walked about 8 km today when I did my errands, and I was dripping with sweat by the time I got home. It was so sunny and warm, and me with a backpack on… I was stinky like a stinky thing that stinks, but I couldn’t resist the walk.
