The Sights, Sounds, and Smells of Spring

I believe Spring has finally arrived in our part of the U.S. Azaleas are in full bloom, vehicles are covered in a fine film of pollen, and the sky is that beautiful shade of blue you only see after the dreary days of winter.

Mornings are filled with the sounds of birds calling, interrupted occasionally by the whoosh of hot air balloons floating over the house. Afternoons are filled with the roar of the lawn mowers and the nursery songs blaring from the ice cream truck.

Evenings are filled with the aroma of dinner - some wafting through open windows and others drifting over from the backyard grills. The smells of chicken and steak, hamburgers and hot dogs.

Ah, Spring!
