A Town Comes Alive

Over the past few days, it seems like our town has come alive. Driving around, one sees many people out walking, running, biking or skateboarding.

The reason?

It's finally approaching spring here! Yes, it's getting warmer (5C right now) and the snow is melting. The sidewalks are drying up, although parts are still covered in snow and/or muddy water. Grass is starting to show around the edges of the lawns, at least the south-facing ones. And the roads are mostly clear, although the alleys are still filled with deep ruts of snow and water. So I am thankful!

And in the very warmest garden bed, crocuses are starting to show their little tips. Now that means spring is really on its way.
