A Whiff of Spring

This morning, the daily run to the mailbox and the refill of the bird feeder turned into the discovery that the south side of my house is free of snow, and the raised planting beds are warming up in the sun. After some scurring with my hands to remove old leaves and dried grass I found the first life of spring: the mint had burst out, the chives poked out in thick dark green strands and the thyme already left a aromatic fragrance on my hand when I gently brushed over it. Chanelle also got his wish, the first spring salad.
