According to my calendar, Spring "actually" springs tonight at 8:07pm EDT (7:07pm my time). Of course, I live in Central Texas so it's been spring-like weather-wise for some time.

well, I shoveled last nights snow from the walkway this morning  Grin

For spring preparation I'm starting my tomato and pepper plants indoors from seed later this week. Other than that I'm just waiting for warm weather.

My plans involve a rake, garbage sacks and a lot of work to begin getting the garden set for the season.  Last weekend involved a rake, a box of matches and a lot of watching to make sure the fire stayed where I wanted it.

I hear that!  I came back here to Philly after being home in San Antonio for spring break (where it was 80 degrees nearly all week), and  there's all this snow on the ground!

However, it's about 50 degress here now, and if I look carefully, a tree outside my window has wee tiny buds on it. Wink

Spring sneaked in here sometime last week; the air changed.  It's been just as cold (10-20F nights, days 10-15F warmer), with snow and sleet, but the air smelled different, the frigid wind no longer cuts at my face, it caresses as it slips past, chill but welcome.

The widowed tiercel peregrine who nests on the building two blocks from my office has been posing on the outermost perch for two weeks, hoping to attract a homeless lady down.

The redtails and sharpshins and Coopers are all out, soaring and swooping.

The chickadees and cardinals in my yard are singing; the woodpeckers are drumming.

Finally, today, two definitive signs:  a woolly bear caterpillar marching across my driveway when I got home this afternoon, and the kettle of turkey vultures overhead.

Spring is here.

Is it really spring? In the last 2 years I've lived in Seattle, Arkansas, and now Denver. I know the calendar says it's spring, but I've been here a month so I have no idea. The final strip of snow melted from my backyard a week ago. Even though it has seemed more than warm enough to melt it for several weeks. I guess that could mean it's spring.

I have no idea what will bloom in my yard if anything. I've got some mysterious shrubs next to my front door that I've also spotted in several of my neighbors yards. At least I think they are shrubs. They are the size and  proportion of shrubs, but they are mostly a heap of twigs.

It's warm enough to run barefoot to the mailbox so I can't complain. But I think my plans for spring are going to include figuring out what the signs of spring are around here, waiting to see what those shrubs/heap of twigs turn into and taking my one year old outside to most likely put things in her mouth.

According to the zodiacs, at the same time that the spring equinox "springs" so to speak, my zodiac (aries) will enter the sun sign.  Anyone know what that means...I mean I didn`t glow or anything like I was expecting to...

Didn`t poof into a pile of dust or fly...

But, I did make a fantastic discovery in my strawberry patch!!  I have strawberries!!  Well two but  ZOMG I`ve got strawberries!  ....and ONE bee.

And I`m almost positive that it`s the same bee.  It likes my plants.  I don`t like it`s buzzing noise but it`s darn cute.

We had our first thunderstorm of the season last night at around one am, which was an exciting way to usher in spring!  Lots of lightening and continuous rumbling thunder like I've never heard--my roommate and I actually wondered out loud if there were bombs going off, although there's no way in hell anyone would bomb this small ass town, lol. 

It was perfect timing, though, we were going to make sacred space that night, so we just opened up all the doors and windows and let the wind do its work. 

I'm going to try to go to an Ostara celebration tonight, and my mom and her boyfriend are having a fire out at their house; not Equinox-related, but it should still be fun.  Especially since my sis is bringing her month-old daughter, hee hee.  I never get sick of snuggling with that kid, even though I see her every day. Being an auntie is so fun!

I hear yah! It's raining rather than snowing here now, but we had flakes last night and there's still mounds of white stuff on the lawn. But this afternoon the air smelt warm and woody and rotting even though it was still cold and there are little green things poking their heads up. So I'm hoping!

I have to ask - what is a reel mower? I'm sure this is something I'm going to feel stupid when I find out, but I have no idea.

That's okay, they are probably also called other things. But basically they are mowers without a motor. This is the one I purchased http://tinyurl.com/2o43el plus it was on sale!

Okay - I do feel dumb. I used to have something like that but I referred to it in an unkind way. They are much better for the environment though. I will rationalize my owning a gas powered mower by promising that it rarely gets used. All my previous neighbors will back me up on this.
