Ask any New Englander, spring is in the air.
It’s not just because it stays lighter longer. (Although that does help our spirits.)
We’ve had some 40 even 50 degree days. Yes it’s true we do have 40 and 50 degree days in winter. But a 40 or 50 degree day in January is still cold.
No, the sun is definitely warmer.
The birds are singing. And yes it’s true we do have year round birds that do sing. But their song is sweeter.
Yes there is definitely a different sound to their trilling.
And it’s not just because most of the snow we received three weeks ago is almost gone. Yes, those 40 and 50 degree days have gone a long way to melting that snow. In fact, there are patches of earth with no snow on them at all.
Maybe it’s a combination of the above or a change in the air, but tt’s true, if you’ve lived here long enough you definitely know when spring is on her way.
Did you ever wonder where spring started? Where exactly the heart of spring is?
Yesterday on our walk I made a startling discovery. Spring’s heart is living right in our little patch of woods. How do I know this?
