I should have guessed that with a non-existent winter the spring wouldn't stick around for too long. Technically spring began this week but really summer began last week when we busted out the shorts and Chacos to enjoy our 80+ degree days. Short as it may have been spring did delight with some lovely pink, purple, and white tree blossoms that perfumed the air.
Another sign that the warm weather is here to stay: On the first day that topped 80 degrees turtles were popping up all over the place. Decidedly out of the picture for the last several months they now cover logs and low branches on the lake everyday acting like they own the place. I bet that nothing would make you miss sun-bathing like being buried in the mud all winter. I can almost hear their collective happy sigh as I jog past. "Ahhhhhh, sun."
