Hello, and welcome to the First Day of Spring. Although, I must admit, Spring has been here for over a month already. See evidence: bluebonnets, red buds, flowering trees, green grass, etc. See also: Texas.

Spring is my favorite time of year, and it's been surprisingly satisfying to be home for the season. The past several years, when I was traveling extensively, I got to know Spring in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. And you know what, they all have a nice Spring, too. Although, at a much slower pace than what we experience down here.

I don't miss the traveling or the loneliness, but I did enjoy blooming rhododendron, tiny little grape hyacinth, and peonies. Those plants don't grow very well in the south. Instead, we have ever lovely azaleas, daffodils, camellias, gardenias, bluebonnets, and red buds. Seems like a fair trade.

Now, let's all play hooky and go to the lake!
