An Unusual Start to Spring

Today marks the first day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox, in the northern hemisphere.  It also marks my first barefoot day of the year.  I have had the windows open all day, and tonight will grill dinner out on the deck.  It's blissful, yet odd.  There are no leaves on the trees yet, and here in New England we often still have a "wintery mix" looming in the forecast at this time of year.

Despite the strangeness of the weather, I fully intend to enjoy every sun drenched moment of warmth seeping into my bones.

How was your first day of Spring? 


  1. Isn't it wonderful to curl your toes in Spring's lush new grass? Loved your photo!

    1. It surely, surely is! I've just walked around the yard and noticed buds almost ready to bloom on my wild cherry and my magnolia - the forsythia isn't even blooming yet! Such a wonderfully bizarre spring :-)
