Spring is both officially and unofficially here in Plymouth

Our mild winter, if it could be called winter, made way for early blooming of flowers and green grass. Tis lovely.

At least I’m declaring it that. A beautiful day combined with lots of eager celebrants = busy bars and restaurants, no doubt busier than a normal weekday St. Patrick’s Day.

little-flowerI love this blog.  I really started it as something of wordpress test run, using it to get familiar with this software.  Before starting it I had all kinds of ideas of the things I could write about Plymouth: culture, art, architecture and events.

Lately, though, I’ve found myself slipping almost entirely into something of community news (soft news, of course) correspondent.  Lacking, it seems, has been creativity and uniqueness.  Instead of writing about the beauty that surrounds us, I’ve mainly been talking about events and happenings.  That’s fine, but I want this blog to be about more than that.

With the weather quickly improving, I hope to be able to get some nice photographs to show and describe some of the unique features of town.  Perhaps I’ll even be able to do one of the things I wanted to do originally which is get some nitty-gritty details about some of the fantastic architectural works in the city.

Spring is a good time to reflect on renewal.  I know that is usually done at the new year, but I like to think of things restarting — coming alive again — now.  Could there be a better time to celebrate the resurrection (for us Christians) than this time of year?  I think not.

Nope, it’s not the return of the glorious Robin, our state bird. It’s the re-opening of the Dairy King on Main Street. The first warm day we had last week the shop re-opened.  As today was a beautiful day, there seemed to be a steady stream of customers at DK.

If you hadn’t heard, Cold Stone Creamery (I always want to call it Stone Cold for some reason) closed.  The business not only closed but everything was yanked out of the space.  Hmmm.  That’s OK in my book.  I prefer the two local ice cream places, Dairy King and Dairy Go-Round, over Stone Cold (hee hee, I said it.)

Today’s a gray, cloudy, wet-feeling day.  But it’s warm. Very warm!  Spring is almos here; winter almost gone.

The crocuses are poking up through the thawing soil. The earth is the yellow-brown of winter slumber.  Snow has disappeared everywhere except the big piles in parking lots.

Everything is grungy.  Dirt. Salt. Mud.  We await the cleansing of the coming rains.

Will it snow again? Probably.  I’d put money on it snowing at least two more times.  Today, though, we gather around winter’s death bed, waiting for the death rattle.
