Spring is coming
Up here in Vermont, we’re finding it hard to believe spring will actually arrive, and stick, this year. We’ve had some gorgeous little teasers, and even a couple of days that felt more like summer than spring. But we’ve also had an awful lot of spring showers – we would just call them April showers, but they continued right into May without a pause. Today, though…..a little chilly this morning, but stunning. And, even though we love to complain about spring not arriving, it obviously has. Grass is green, trees are showing their tiny bright green leaves and our neighbor has taken down his light up Santa.
Our first cycling guests show up in a week or two and then summer will be upon us! In these last few weeks of what will hopefully be spring, while Vermont is waking up and stretching toward summer, there are some great activities and things to do. Not least of which is to just get outside. Whether you are a runner, a walker, a hiker, a biker or a sit-in-an-adirondack-chair-with-a-glass-of-wine-and-a-booker, these first few days of really good weather always feel so good. Almost like every year we can hardly believe it will happen. And every year we forget that always will.
Unfortunately for me, this is the time of year that I can start to list all kinds of great events and activities happening locally that we just can’t find the time for. The most recent one that has caught my eye is the Vermont Open Studio Weekend. It’s May 28 & 29 and artists studios around the state are open to the public. I just think that sounds like great way to spend a day or two – peeking into an artist’s workspace, seeing their creations and touring as far and wide around Vermont as you’d like. So, if a few of you would go do that for me, I’d greatly appreciate it. Stop by for dinner if you’d like, heck, come spend the night, we’ll be here.Pages:
