Want Spring?

Enough. Enough. Enough. Spring is here, as is a forecast for another 9-12″ of snow this week. I debated today about clearing the flower beds or just getting the snowblower ready for another round.

I’m hungry for the scent of sun-warmed bulbs bursting through the soil. I’m longing for splashes of color. I’m nearly delirious for days where road salt and sand are replaced by the salt and sand of the beach.

If we can’t have spring, yet. Then here’s my make-do. Daffodils. They have a softer sweet smell than the hyacinths that markets are pushing. Their color is unrepentant YELLOW, calling out the sun.

For about two bucks at the market, the perfect fix. Try them!
