Day 122: The real first sign of spring.

Some say the red-breasted robin. Others say it’s the first crocus or tulip or daffodil. It could be the first time you don’t wear your boots to work or the first sneeze of allergy season.

Y’all are wrong. Here’s how I know that my beloved winter is gone:

    No. I won’t presss ‘like’. Get out there and enjoy the daffodils!

      Can’t I enjoy them indoors? In a lovely vase? Perhaps with a nice cuppa? And a stuffed bee instead of a real one?

        Okay, I’ll make a deal. When the lilacs come out, I’ll put on a bee hat and bug spray and sit outside with some iced tea. But until then, I’ll enjoy the view from the bay windows. Shake on it?

        Done! No bug spray though. You may not kill bees. There are few enough of them these days, and we need them. Yes we do.

        I should have used “repellent” – I meant the stuff that I put on myself to keep bugs away.

        Honey bees and bumblebees are fine in my book. I promise I won’t kill them, and I wouldn’t anyway. But all bets are off if I can’t kill wasps/yellow jackets. There is plenty of cross-pollination without them, they don’t eat stink bugs or mosquitoes, they are quite aggressive and their stings are no joke. I have no use for a wasp.

        Me neither. Let’s finally shake on it 😉

        Done, and done! 🙂
