Fleeting Thoughts of Spring

Is it terribly wrong of me to already be thinking of tiny green growths popping out of the soil, excitement of remembering what was planted new last year and waiting to see if it survived the winter, the sound of the shovel as you plunge it into the ground to move an overabundance of purple phlox, and dirt under your fingernails because you, once again, didn’t bother to put on your gardening gloves before you started pulling those nasty weeds?

Oops, I can't seem to help myself...
