Doesn’t it feel a little like a seasonal April Fool? April 1, 2016, and the cherry blossoms are just about finished, daffodils and hyacinths are blooming, tulip foliage is full and green and buds are visible, and oh good grief, grass is springing up all over and ready for mowing!
SPRINGIN’ …the arising of nature within a fairly short time from the drab dark and cold of winter to new blooming growth and beauty. This especially early spring might feel a little like an April Fool joke but the reality of this early springin’ of blooming color in our region fills the senses and is oh so welcome.
Skip all that traffic to the DC tidal basin. Frederick’s springin’ is more than worthy of a long walk or easy drive to view the eye popping masses of bright yellow forsythia gorgeous whether on the tips of a carefully trimmed bush or in the sprawling shoots of weeping shrubs covering a hillside, or enjoy the vision of white at the top of the trees as you travel north on South Market Street and so many other of our area streets and roads, and savor the bursts of color from bulbs so many residents carefully plant in their yards and on hillsides bordering roads whether an acre or a couple of square feet.
Uncover the patio furniture early this year and breathe in the fresh air. Enjoy an early April Day on the deck of your townhomes and hang a birdfeeder. Get out on the balcony of your apartments and enjoy the view. There is nothing like livin’ in Frederick for “Springin”!
Weather forecast for International Falls, Minnesota for April 1 is temperature of 29 degrees with a mix of snow and rain. Ready to move to Frederick, MD?
