THIS is spring. Partially sunny skies, temperatures above 45 degrees, and the ability to wear less than five layers at all times. Of course precipitation cannot be ignored, I welcome it & know that a dry spring will only bring fiery summers. Wonderful, wonderful day. And in my quaint, upside-down world – this is my first day of spring. A perfect day to spend out among nature – unfortunately my partner in crime is forced to spend his time studying for finals. Sigh. One more day.
