Tomorrow will mark the beginning of the calendar spring. Sunday was St. Patrick's Day and the wearing of green really marked the beginning of spring.
My mother was dressed in green at her Rainycrest home and she could feel the heat of the sun blazing through her south-facing window on Sunday afternoon. For her, that heat from the sun was a clear indicator that spring is on the way.
She couldn't see the blue sky, or know what month we are in, but the heat of the sun told her that spring was arriving. And she was pleased that winter was coming to an end.
