What are your signs of spring?




What are the first things you notice in spring?
I used to be obsessed with the growth of the green leaves. Their arrival was the true sign of spring.
Looking at springtime through Tom’s eyes has extended my view. I now notice that spring buds are the same color as the fall color will be. There are varying textures and bloom times in the hedgerows and hillsides. The soil cultivation tells a story of what is to come in summer. Sunlight sparkles more brilliantly in the emerging soft leaves.
