Today is St. Brigid’s Day. In Ireland it is considered to be the first day of Spring….when signs of life begin to return to the world. Unfortunately, I am not in Ireland, I am in New England, and it will be awhile before we can expect any green shoots or buds here. But at least it was warmer today, and the sun was out for a time. The air actually felt pleasant. More people were out and about, enjoying the day and it was possible to even stop and chat. What a pleasant change from the bitter cold we have been having! It is not the beginning of Spring, but it is something, and I will take it.
The girls are back out in the coop and loving it. When I brought them their oatmeal this morning they were already out enjoying a dust bath.
Snow is predicted for later in the week, with more cold. But today was nice…a touch of Spring…a reminder of what is to come…eventually.
Happy St. Brigid’s Day!
