Spring for us in New England is liberating! After a long cold Winter, as soon as a warm, sunny Spring day comes (not the rainy cold ones), neighbors are out and about, windows in houses are flung wide open, cushions on porch furnitures are restored, the trees and plants start budding and blooming. The gardener in me gets giddy at this time of the year and I can’t wait to play in the dirt! Also, for us as a family, we have a ritual on that first warm Spring day. We give our convertible a “top down spin” along the coastline ending up in Gloucester for lunch. It is something we look forward to. I am always happy when Spring is finally here! It is my favorite season!
