Spring Forward

Ahh, spring! Daylight saving time arrives on March 11 followed by the first day of spring on March 20. The air is sweet and filled with the smell of flowers. It is neither too cold nor too hot—just perfect. The angle of the sun casts light so adroitly that everything is bathed in what seems heavenly light. Long walks punctuate the days and dining outside seems just right. Though named for the Roman god of war, Mars, March is a time to rejoice in the splendor of spring. Mars was also the protector of crops and guardian of agriculture. Bright, sparkling, fresh and new, 31 days instead of 28—spring has sprung! Now to battle those garden pests, but with the help of Mars, the enemies will be vanquished! Maybe?

Good luck,
