Daylight Savings Time.

Oh yeah.

Getting up early just took on a whole other meaning.

But with it came the Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal.

Taking turns in the birdbath.

Signs of spring.

Also, Cedar Waxwings.

Dozens in the trees.

And berry-laden bushes.

And mockingbirds.

And yellow Lesser Goldfinches.

It’s that time.

The pressure rising.

Bulbs blooming.

Buds bursting.

Cows calving.

Rain actually falling.

Enough to mark the gauge.

Spring Spring Spring.

Spring Break.

Spring out of bed.

Spring into action.

Start off the day.

With a spring in your step.

A spark in your heart.

And a speck in your eye.

Well, maybe not a speck.

How ‘bout a glimmer.

Gleeful and bright.

Like the daffodils cropping up.

And the snowcups.

And grape hyacinths.

The quince just finishing.

Blooming, that is.

Where one leaves off, another begins.

Texas redbud.

Comin’ on.

So are the irises.

And heaven knows what all.

Bluebonnets have burst onto the scene.

At the corner of Kettner and Post Oak.

Soon they’ll line the roads.

And make pastures glow.

And drivers pull over to take in the sight.

Followed by Indian Blankets and coreopsis.

A plethora of color and delight.

Testament that hope springs eternal.

And so does Spring.

That’s Mason.
