Spring? Signs of Spring? The streets are finally plowed, slow snow melt.
Parking lots are snow free too, more parking at Walmart! LOL
Other signs of spring? There's a cool front in the forecast instead of another cold front. Chance of rain & snow instead of ice & snow.
There are no other signs of spring yet except for the date on the calendar. Some wise guy circled it as a federal holiday!
I thought I saw the sun this morning but it was just that blasted street light.
We generally do a little planting around mid May. We had a cold summer in 1993. 50's most days, We hit 72 once that summer.
The robins usually come here in February but I have not seen them yet. People are still talking about making soup.
E-coli will be history before we get a fresh salad around here. I wonder how long a mosquito can hibernate?

StirBlue, you must live up around Chicago. Our spring is about a month ahead of yours. I'd send you a bouquet of daffodils if I could.

Spring will come...I guarantee it!
We get by with a little help from our friends

I hope you all enjoy your Spring. Our break started today. I'm hoping to catch up on sleep and rest. I'm exhausted from work. Enjoy your time off!
