Suddenly, all at once, there are green and lavender and white blossoms on the trees. The grass is turning green. Now, the warmer weather will start creeping northwards and show up in Missouri and Iowa, to the west in Colorado and Utah and up into the Badlands. Ohio, Indiana, Illinois will see it soon. Wisconsin and Minnesota soon afterwards, and it won’t be long before the Northeast blossoms, too. So, for those of you still freezing, take heart. It’s been one hell of a winter, but it’s just about over with.
