Stop and smell the dirt

These are last years first crocus buds.  I'm looking forward to seeing this years any day now!

After the long snowy winter we have had I was excited this morning to smell dirt for the first time in months. Yes – dirt! I stopped and took a moment to breathe deeply and smell the scent of earth. During our morning walks we are now hearing an abundance of bird chatter – robins chirping, the cardinals have switched to their spring song, the raucous call of blue jays and woodpeckers hammering away looking for bugs. And delight of delights, I think I am finally done with wearing snow pants in the morning since the last few days have been about 30 degrees rather than 10. Yay for spring!  We’ve made it through another winter.
