Spring Is Here

The "official" first day of spring has finally come. In Texas, weekends will find people putting their children among the roadside bluebonnets for pictures, many of which will go out on Easter.

The Dallas Arboretum will feature Dallas Blooms, a spectacle well worth taking in.

Spring training in baseball will give way to the opening day festivities. Until then, the Texas Rangers (and every other team) will be undefeated.

My golf partner and I will (hopefully) finally be able to get our golf clubs out and start  playing, no longer shut out by rain, cold, respiratory infections, and other factors.

It's spring. It's time to celebrate the world we've been given. What are you going to do about it?

I remember Texas bluebonnets. (I lived there as a child.) Here the neighboring field is full of daffodils and always makes me think of Wordsworth.

I'm going to Medistat and get a decadron shot and whatever else goes with it for allergies. :-) But I'm still going to enjoy the flowers and the warm weather!

Lest there be any misapprehension, bluebonnets aren't a source of most of our pollen allergies. And Patricia--whatever works.
Thanks to you both for your comments.
