As I write this, it is the first day of spring! We were well below freezing when I woke up, but it is warmer now and the sun is shining. Which makes it the perfect day to answer this week’s Blog Hop topic:
It's creeping out of winter to the spring. Is this your favorite season? If not, which one is and why?
I have a love/hate relationship with spring. I love it because it means winter is over and the wonderful days of summer are on their way. But where I live, it is also one of the uglier times of year. Sometimes I like to say we have five seasons. We’re in the fifth right now, semi-affectionately called “The Melt.” As the snow starts to disappear, piles of gravel and refuse are left behind. Our city has a special Clean Up day in April specifically to clear all the debris that’s been hidden by snow all winter long. Until then, though, it can be kind of awful.
