Yes, it has officially come today.
The calendar told me two days ago that it was in fact, the first day of Spring. But when the sky is grey and menacing, the wind is cold and so strong it's difficult to breathe, it's silent like death and there's still a good feet of fresh snow....even if the day is March the 21th, it is NOT spring in my book.
I'd rather trust Mother Nature on that one, she knows best.
This morning, the sun is shinning, the air is cool and smells sweet, most of the snow has melted, the sky has put it's Easter colors on and the birds are singing and making babies....THERE you go!
Spring has come on the 23th of march this year, whether we like it or not.
