Signs of Spring

Spring is in the air, on the ground, and inside too. The air feels cold, but the sun shines longer and stronger each day. My neighborhood is coming to life--greenery peeking out everywhere, folks walking their dogs or simply strolling around town, when lingering outside was done only when necessary just a couple of weeks ago.

Here are signs of spring in my town.
Spring has arrived when the local ice cream shop opens.
My first of the season!
Displays of sun tan lotion, outdoor chairs and beach gear 
replace racks of snow shovels, umbrellas, gloves and hats.

Spring color!

Unfortunately spring also brings weeds. Lots of them.
Winter hibernation ends.
Folks wander outside and walk, run, ride bikes, 
and welcome the season.

What is more spring-like than baseball?
To celebrate opening day of the baseball season,
I offer a quote--Berra-ism--from the late great Yogi Berra,
famous for his expressions. One of my favorites:

Baseball is 90% mental and the other half physical.
