Woodsman Journal Think Spring
Yesterday was a beautiful, blue sky, winter day. Even though it was quite blustery. It was the kind of breeze that reminds us to keep the woolies, long johns, and Sorrels handy for a little while yet. But there was something else mixed into the crisp, clean air. It was an earthy, yet sweet fragrance. Yep, it was a spring!
Well, not quite yet. But you can literally smell by it mid-February. I’m not saying we won’t see Old Man Winter again. We will. But his frozen, snowy, short days, and long nights is numbered. In fact I’ll predict there’s 60 days left until spring, 50 if it’s a good year.
Now, that might sound like a lot of days left. But then look at it this way, just last Halloween (my grand kids still have some candy left) it was 167 days. Think spring … already!
