Springtime Reflections . . .
With a fire in the wood stove and a chance of snow in the forecast, it feels far more like early March than late April today. Still, the peepers sing on and ruddy maples scatter blossoms to the forest floor. It’s spring, Michaela, can’t you tell?
We New Englanders may grit our teeth at the meteorological phrase ‘Wintry Mix’, but the unseasonably cold weather does have its advantages. I note that early spring bulbs (Galanthus, Crocus and Chinodoxa), as well as the first flowering trees and shrubs are blooming longer than usual. But I do confess that as I gather firewood for the upcoming chill, I find myself yearning for new green leaves and warmer days. Come now spring …May Day fast approaches!
