This week, we had 3 days in the 80’s in Central Maine. Unheard of for March! (But then again, so was 8 inches of snow on October 30 last fall). The girls were squealing with delight when they saw lilac buds on our trees, and Levi called me to the window to see a pair of cardinals, male and female, exploring our back garden.
The grass is still mostly brown, and there is not the usual green associated with spring, with it coming on so suddenly and early… but earth is responding slowly.
