The signs are subtle but unmistakable. A freshness appears in the air that you can detect with that first breath taken outside the door. Delicate, blushing flowers appear low to the ground, humbly and cheerfully, to remind you that it’s time to emerge from hibernation. And pushing out from the rock is a flash of green – not the same green that has endured the snows and the winds, but a young, more vibrant green that has just arrived. Don’t let the sudden drop in temperature or forecast of snow fool you. That’s just one last little tantrum that winter will throw. It will be over soon.
