Saugerties, April 2018
They say Spring is here. As I write this, I cannot really tell why.
It’s still cold outside my window and they just forecast more snow tomorrow and several times this week. And yet there’s a sense of anticipation in the air, because we New Yorkers knowing that soon it will be Spring and flowers will bloom.
New York State readies itself for the season of flowers, hiking and food. And it is the season that sets up the great outdoors for summer. Flower shows abound throughout the state, like the Lilac Festival in Rochester. Hiking trails open up everywhere and the Hudson River is a thing of scenic beauty.
It is also the season that food comes alive. Maple sugaring and strawberry picking are favorites for all New Yorkers and if you happen to be visiting, make sure you get a taste of the state.
So, no matter how cold it seems outside my window today, I have my welcome carpet out for Spring. As a famous American author, Hal Borland said, “No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.”

And wherever you may be in the world, and whatever be your weather, I hope you have a great season!
Till next time…
