It's been long awaited. And it's finally arrived.

The signs are all around. Today is the first day that I stepped outside and didn't feel at least a bit of coolness in the air. It's actually warm -- 72 degrees right now.

Gotta wonder how that can be so when right below the current temp on Yahoo's weather app it says the high today will be 66 degrees.

With the exception of a couple of days that have been a bit cloudy here and there, we've had just about two straight weeks of sunshine. All the sun and lack of rain hasn't been good for the area's water level, but I'm sure it's brightened many a Mainer's mood after such a long winter.

In just about 10 days, the hardy hostas have already progressed nicely in their growth cycle.

From daring shoots ...

... to beauteous leafy blooming

All that leafy goodness will eventually serve as a salad bar of sorts for the deer with whom we share these woods. The hostas grow and cover all the ground area of the small rotary in front of the house, making a lush munching spot for our white-tailed friends.

The woodsy trees are sporting more and more green as the leaves bud and unfurl, and the flowering trees are getting more colorful.

Part of spring's sunny palette

I've been enjoying the signs as they present themselves. And now I'm off to enjoy this glorious day. Hope you get to do the same.
