Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.
Spring has sprung! Looking at the snow outside my window, I'd never guess that today officially marks the first day of Spring, but it's here nonetheless - and about time I might add. Hope may spring eternal in the human breast, but in the northern hemisphere I suspect we also hope eternal for spring - it's certainly felt like an eternity. This website provides an excellent explanation of the March equinox.
I guess it'll soon be time for our spring baths... lol!
