Signs of spring:
*allergies in overtime
*green spots in a brown landscape
*tree buds littering the sidewalk after strong wind and rain
*warmer temperatures, followed by colder temperatures, followed by warmer temperatures
*track meets and ball games
*prom dresses and tuxes in local restaurants
*sandals and capris
*lawn chairs appearing
Our temperatures have been cool enough that there aren't a lot of flowers blooming yet, but that doesn't keep kids from showing up to school in shorts and flip flops. (Interesting outfit for the day that it snowed quite a bit!)
I haven't put boots and sweatshirts away yet, but have gradually pulled out some capri pants and sandals. I've hauled limbs off a couple of times, but haven't planted any spring flowers yet.
Even Easter is late this year.
I like these slow springs.
