SPRING'S A'PEEK'N THRU: Gotta Share!

NO MATTER HOW LONG THE WINTER, SPRING IS SURE TO FOLLOW
SPRING IS SOONER RECOGNIZED BY PLANTS THAN MEN
Yester eve, the sky showed it's cold, winter nature. At the close of day today, with the coffee made ready for me to push the button at 5:45AM and the table set for breakfast, it was time to wake up my old Gunner dog for last call. He hesitated at the kitchen door for good reason. There was a 30 knot wind blowing a cold, driving rain. Yes, he went when I told him to, but, trust, me it was a record "whiz" and he was back to give me a shower before I could towel him off.
This may have been a record warm winter in Northeast Ohio. We have hardly had snow at all, no deep snow. My pretty wife, Julie, just commented last night about the lack of moisture for the farmers this year.
Winter is still with us, however. At nearing midnight, the temperature is still a balmy 37 degrees, were it not for the rain, that would be very pleasant. Tomorow it will be our first plus 50 degree day, with two days of rain and then a rain/snow mixture.
IF WE HAD NO WINTER, THE SPRING WOULD NOT BE SO PLEASANT;
IF WE DID NOT SOMETIMES TASTE ADVERSITY,
PROSPERITY WOULD NOT BE SO WELCOME
BUT THE REAL REASON FOR THIS BLOG:
My tulips above are a'peek'n through the mulch.
They won't be lonely, my sedums, or Live Forevers, are also..
The buds on the lilac are starting to swell.
I almost feel sorry for my friends in Southern California, in Phoenix, AZ or my readers in the Bahamas and other temperate climates.
THEY ARE GOING TO MISS SPRING!
A few years ago, I flew to San Diego around
this time of year to start a cross-country bike ride.
