-->Music: “Spring Number Three Allegro”
Antonio Vivaldi

“In the Spring at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”

I have always loved this Margaret Atwood quote
Since I have been a gardener, since my childhood
I have always loved the Spring dirt and the Spring mud
The Renewal of Life each Spring, makes me feel good

Our pair of nesting Robins has also now finally returned
Their lovely Spring songs, are now echoing through the air
Besides preparing my garden, I can now romp with my dogs
Who like myself, have Cabin Fever, and yearn to be out there

So I have always believed that in the Spring, at the end of every day
One should smell like dirt, and mud, and dog, and also be exhausted
To me each of the Four Seasons has some truly wondrous attributes
And each and every Spring morning, my dogs and I are ready, again

©First Day of Spring 2015, Mr. Ed

Happy 1st day of Spring. Lovely music to welcome the
most wonderful day. Love the quote. "I love Spring
anywhere, but if I could I would always greet it in
a garden" ~ Ruth Stout

The mutt in the picture is how you are supposed to look after spending a wonderful Spring Day gardening, romping, and Nature Watching - Dog-Tired!
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 3/20/2015
On the contrary, the mutt in that picture doesn't seem at all enthused. Looks as though spring is another boring day's snooze.

I really miss getting my hands dirty in the hot mud of Houston. But I don't miss it turning to concrete in the heat of summer. I'll spring plants can make it through each year, I don't know.
