The Smell of the Rain

I walked outside yesterday morning and the rain was softly falling as predicted. For the first time since last year, the air was scented with the smell of earth and life. It was no longer the cold, sterile smell of the winter, but rebirth and renewal was in the air. 

It was a refreshing experience. It told me that Spring was close! The days are warmer, the sun is shining, I am feeling refreshed and overcoming the lethargy of the dark days. 

Some of the yards are sporting flowers--crocus and daffodils. My yard is colder and while the leaves are up, the flowers have not yet bloomed. But they will soon.

The dark days are over. The daylight is remaining now until 6 PM and the sun is up before 7 AM. Life outside is about to begin again.
