I am not sure if the temperature indicator on my dashboard is a blessing or a curse - I mean, at sub-zero "springtime" temps, isn't ignorance bliss? I had to chuckle when I heard the radio hosts talking about the rumoured lynching of the groundhogs that had predicted an early spring. In our neck of the woods his name is Wireton Willie. But hey, can we blame these furry fluffballs if Spring has turned out to be a tease?
She shows up in living colour; pulls us in; flirts; toys with our weather sensibilities and then disappears. Hide and seek. She'll be back by the end of the week and after a few more grand entrances and flamboyant displays to satiate her need for attention, she'll settle down and stay for the season.
Spring is a short - but much anticipated - transitional season with only a small window of opportunity to make an impression.
So if you are listening Spring, we love you and want you back - for good. Enough is enough. Truly!
