Welcome to Spring

Monday, April 28, 2014

It was a long winter, but spring is finally here. How do I know? Four ways.

The first is the buds on the trees outside my office window. The second is all the birds I encounter on my morning walks. Most are robins, but it is the cardinals that make me wish I had my camera along.

The third sign of spring is the road kill on U.S. 30 as I drove to and from Ft. Wayne on Saturday. One carcass even looked like a young deer.

But for Roland and me, the key proof came yesterday when we launched Freizeit for another sailing season. We battled the wind and did not emerge unscathed, but in the end we were the victors.

Spring is here. Finally.
