Deep in your bones you know it’s here.
“The first official day of spring is marked annually by the vernal equinox. For 2014, the official start of the equinox is (was) March 20, 2014. AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski defines the Vernal Equinox as when the sun crosses the equator going south to north.”
Sure signs of spring for me are that the days start a little earlier, the nights start a little later, and my dog seems to have a new bounce in her step and is eager to go outside. The apple trees suddenly have blossoms, the forsythia is a beautiful yellow, and, in Macon, the world-famous cherry blossoms start to appear on the Yoshino cherry trees.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve neverbeen one to spend my days in the garden or yard planting and picking, but I am definitely one that appreciates God’s beauty all around.
I love knowing that the smell and taste of fresh tomatoes is getting closer. I love sitting on my deck watching the birds, and I even enjoy my morning walks.
What about you? What does Spring feel like to you?
