Robins? Cardinals? Melting parking lot snow mountains? Potholes disguised as mild-mannered puddles able to suck up a VW Bug in a single sploosh? You might think so, but no. Today, several people commented at different times that they knew spring was coming because they smelled their first skunk. Eh, yeah.

Meanwhile, I couldn't help it. Being warmish and very sunny I ventured forth. I spy tulips! I spy crocus! I spy sedum! I spy hyacinths! Forget the skunks. Forget the birds. Forget the calendar. Forget the Emergency Email I just received threatening snow tomorrow. It doesn't matter. Today I spied tiny green growing things -- the true promise of spring.
