Today is Easter Sunday. It is not a holiday that we celebrate here, but it’s also the beginning of spring, which we DO celebrate here. After a long New England winter, spring is the most welcome of all the four seasons.
There is nothing like seeing the little red buds on the trees bursting out more and more each day, and the brilliant yellow and purple croci coming up through the long dormant earth in the front garden.
Yes, spring is finally here.
So Happy Easter to all who celebrate it, and Happy Spring to everyone (except for those south of the equator, right? It’s more like fall there, isn’t it?)
Happy April. Let’s just put it that way.
