If you happen to live somewhere that doesn't become bitterly cold for nearly half of the year it mght be difficult to understand the crazy-making bliss that a day of warm sunshine brings. We run outside, half-dressed to chip at the still frozen earth and make garden plans. Yesterday it was 41 F and I saw a man driving down Main street with the top down, followed by a few motorcycles during the morning. Here in Wisconsin we get a little crazy when spring rolls in.
While the snow is still piled high in our backyard yesterday we could be found in the muddy spots planting seeds (the four-year-old of our crew in summer shoes and wearing no tights). Spring! So sweet. Each day in Spring we hop on our bikes and roll through the neighborhood, looking for "Signs of Spring".
