The First Day of Spring

The First Day of Spring

Well it appears Pawtucket Phil or Poughkeepsie Pete or whatever his name was right.  I do believe we are to have an early spring.  And after checking the trusty internet, it is confirmed.  Spring begins Wednesday March 20th.  Even after a relatively mild North Texas winter, I must say I’m glad spring is almost here.  I’m sure most can agree that winter is their least favorite season.  As brutal as our Texas summers can be with our multiple days of 100 degree temperatures, I still rank winter dead last amongst the four seasons.  The days are shorter, the sun goes down early, and we are usually confined to our homes with the exception of going to work and taking our kids to school and running errands.  But as dull and depressing as winter can be, I’ve learned over the years that everything requires balance.  The one reason that I can identify most with is appreciation for the other seasons.  And with spring a little over a week away, I don’t know if there’s anyone more excited than me.

 Spring is a wonderful time of year.  Each passing day seems to get a little longer and a little warmer.  People come out of hibernation, walking their dogs and beginning their work on their lawns and flowerbeds.   Trees and flowers come in bloom splashing the neighborhoods and countryside in various shades of green.  The skies seem bluer, the clouds are minimal, and the sun feels warm on your skin.  Another thing that makes spring my favorite season is our beloved bluebonnets.  We get a rare treat here in Texas with the beautiful purple perennials.  I think most everyone has taken a family photo in a field of bluebonnets.  It is as much a tradition as sending out Christmas cards.  It is a wonderful thing in late March/early April to pack up the family on a Saturday and go for a drive on one of the numerous Farm to Market roads in search of a field of bluebonnets.  And if you’ve never done it, put that at the top of your bucket list.

 

 So with spring just over a week away, I encourage everyone to get out and enjoy our new season as it arrives.  Go for a drive with the family.  Work in your yard.   Host a neighborhood BBQ.  Go fly a kite(literally).   Go to a local youth baseball or soccer game.   Go to your favorite hangout and sit on the patio and enjoy a bucket of beer.  Put the wool sweaters and heavy coats away.  Get in the back of your closet and dig out your shorts and flip-flops.  Open your windows in your home.  Roll down the windows and open the sunroof in your car.  As I sit here writing this I recall the words to the Roger Creager song, Having Fun All Wrong: well I’m seeing what you saw, springtime is beautiful and I’m proud to call this country home.  Goodbye winter, hello spring!
