Rebirth

Officially, tomorrow is the first day of Spring. Here in Orlando, right next to Walt Disney World, it’s felt like Spring since January.

Even as I write this, birds are chirping, trees in bloom, the warm Florida sunshine baking the ground for the rebirth of caladiums, black-eyed susans, blanket flowers (State Flower), periwinkles and a host of other perennials.

The first caladium broke through the ground March 7 – this is the sign I teach Chapin to look for. What’s your first sign of Spring?
