Spring is springing

Ahh...Springtime in Seattle.

Spring has always been my favorite season of the year. There's so much hope in the air, things are coming back to life, the days are getting longer, and supposedly the air gets warmer. Plus, my birthday is in April...which may have a lot to do with it.

Our tulips are popping up and the poppies are blooming - all good signs that this long, cold, dark, and wet winter is finally coming to an end. I can't wait for the tulips to bloom and the mornings to be warm enough that I can comfortably wait for the bus on Lake City Way without freezing to death. Mostly, I hope that all the anxiety and worry about our economy starts to thaw away with the warmer days. Maybe some nice warm, sunny weather will help put things back into perspective for everyone.

Maybe the economy was just hibernating.

Wow, your yard looks nice and active. Ours is looking kind of dreary and dead. I'm hopeful our bushes will come back to life if it would finally get a little warmer out there.

I have said the same thing to Nathan! There is something deeply psychological about Spring coming - hope! And the market needs that desperately. It's my favorite season! And the first leaves/sign of a Spring bulb about to bloom is one of the most exciting sights.
