Sea Isle 2.22.2006

By Rick Racela

I’ve been checking out my trees and shrubs and many have swollen buds on them – like they usually have in February.
I have some daffodils and hyacinths coming up and forsythia with about a dozen flowers in bloom.
The birds are really lively in my yard – pairing off and making a few nests and being very chirpy like in the springtime.
I have already seen blue jays, red cardinals, and the starlings really never left.
The calendar may say February, but it feels like a perfect day in April.
In other words, it feels like springtime.
The meteorologists will claim that spring doesn’t arrive until the end of March; and most years we don’t actually see it until April sometime.
But today it was unmistakable can you believe over 60 degrees and with that was the fact all five senses positively screamed SPRING every time I went outside.
The warmth and humidity of the air on my skin and the thawing ground squishing under my feet.
Well, I don’t know how long this will last but I hope everyone is enjoying this unbelievable weather.
