How does one picture spring?

24 Mar

Oh boy, I’m in trouble now.

A friend of mine invited me to a Facebook “event” yesterday, which she calls “Spring Spotting.”  She described it thusly:

Every day for the next 15 post a picture of signs of spring, things that remind you of spring, etc. Let’s see if we can encourage Mother Nature to bring it on faster! We start Monday, March 25 and end Monday, April 8.

So I’m always up for a challenge, and I “joined.”  But now I kinda wish I hadn’t.  I mean, it’s a great idea, but I go to work every morning at 7 am and when I get home I pretty much hunker down for the evening.  I’m not exactly sure what kinds of spring-y things I’m going to see during my wildly over-scheduled day.

Maybe a sunrise. But everyone will do that. The perennials poking up through the garden? Everyone will do that. Deer tracks in the snow? Naw.

Wait. I got it.  Nothing says “Rochester spring” better than black slush piles. Potholes. Litter peeking out of the melting snowbanks like budding flowers.

OK, I got the first three days in the bag. Now don’t tell anyone else my ideas, OK?
