Top Ten Signs of Spring

Everything seems to be springing back to life this week…  but you can never be too sure in New England. They tell me it could frost up until the last week in May.  On walks, I keep my eyes open for signs that the season really is here. Here are ten signs I saw recently:

10: Star Magnolia in bloom:

9: Bees are buzzin’

8: Azaleas popping:

7. Forsythia in bloom

6. Dogs swimming:

5. Phlox creeping:


4. Canoes and Kayaks on the move:

3. The first goldfinch spotted:

2. Horsetail strobili spreading their spores:

1. And the number one sign that spring has arrived: No more frozen sheets!
