Spring is in the air down here in Tampa, folks. I’ve been feeling the warmth and smelling the scent of it all day today.
The lawnmowers are running all over the neighborhood. I also hear the chain saws and wood chippers as folks are out doing the spring yard work. I sure hope they read my tips on winterizing their lawn and garden equipment. 😉 I’ll be headed out to my own yard some time in the next week or so to trim my eight oaks and rake a few leaves.The oaks are already starting to bloom. I hope they don’t make me sneeze this year.
I love the springtime. It’s a wonderful time of year when everything wakes up and soaks up that wonderful sunshine. Everything is GREEN, my favorite color. All the birds and other critters start their springtime routines, happily foraging for fresh tidbits while taking care of the little additions to the nests. It’s a wonderful time of year, without the sad melancholy of fall, when life prepares for the big sleep of wintertime.
Another wonderful thing that gets started this time of year is BASEBALL! Woo-hoo! I can hardly wait for the Spring Training season to start. I want to see how my newly re-created Tampa Bay Rays are going to fare in the AL East this season. I’m predicting a 100 win season right here and now. I think they have what it takes to get the job done. GO RAYS!
So, anyway… Happy Spring, folks! Here’s wishing you a wonderful, pleasant time of it.
