Spring is in the Air. Maybe.


"If there comes a little thaw,
Still the air is chill and raw,
Here and there a patch of snow,
Dirtier than the ground below,
Dribbles down a marshy flood;
Ankle-deep you stick in mud
In the meadows while you sing,
'This is Spring.' "
~Christopher Pearce Cranch, A Spring Growl

Can you tell I'm suffering from an early case of Spring Fever? The sun isn't even out today but it was 50 before 8 o'clock this morning and that is exciting to me. Only 14 more days to go until the official start of spring! Warmer days are getting closer.
