You Know It’s Spring When

There are always signs that a new season has arrived. Sometimes you notice the signs immediately. And some of them you realize after a few times that something occurs. Here are a few of the things I have noticed recently that made me realize spring has finally arrived.

The first thing I noticed this year was the annual blessing of the bikes. I’m not a biker, but I know you have a hard time riding in the winter. And every year someone blesses the bikes in the spring. I’ve never been to it but it does sound like fun.

I feel a need to stop by Menard’s on a regular basis. You know I have to pickup seeds for the garden, and of course see what flowers are available. I rarely go to the hardware stores in the winter.

I’ve also noticed that I’m arriving places five minutes sooner than I planned. Could it be that it takes less time to get places because I don’t have to put on a winter coat and search for my gloves?

And I can be out at seven o’clock at night and wonder why it’s still light out? Then I realize it’s spring and the days are getting longer.
