Spring time….FINALLY!

Well, the beginnings of Spring….but I’m so keen, I will accept that.

Just when it seemed to turn into spring just over a week and a half ago, the weather turned cold and wintry again with heavy snowfalls and freezing rain.

We often get snowfalls in April, but generally they don’t last long….with the snow melting away again the following day, due to the sunshine.

So, this was most unusual.

But yesterday it finally turned into spring-like weather and temperatures!

The sun was shining, the snow continued to disappear, and the temperatures turned warmer.

After all my errands for the day, I headed back outside…on foot this time….for a good long walk and to observe the changes.

There was a cool wind blowing – lots of fresh spring air!

When the sun shines brightly, there is this striking shimmer bouncing off of last year’s old crop stems…..

It looked like these two were riding bicycles….except they were motorized…..similar to mopeds?
