There was a silly dittie from my childhood.
"Spring has sprung,
the grass is ris...
I wonder where the burdies is?"
After the world's longest winter with record amounts of snow, today is a blessing. The first day of spring and the birds are back, singing and marking their territories. There are still thick piles of snow on the ground, but the sun is out and I see grass. Never mind the forecast calling for seven inches of snow. It's Spring!
