Harbingers of Spring 2015

Harbingers of Spring 2015
"Harbingers" is my word of the month.  It's one of those words that hang around on the edges of your mind.  You know what it means but when you try to think what it means, the meaning just sort of slips away from you.  This word jumped in front of me a few days ago while I was researching something on the internet.  

The word snagged on something in my brain and caused me to start looking for "harbingers".  My world is full of them.  Here's a list of some of the things that I started seeing:

1.  What says "spring" better than a robin hopping about your yard?

2.  What says "spring" louder than melting snow and mud?

3.  What says "spring" with a funnier sound than honking geese heading north overhead?

4.  What says "spring" happier than a woodshed that has more wood going in than coming out?

5.  What says "spring" with a promise when you see the rhubarb peeking their little red heads through the ground?  

6.  What says "spring" when what's falling from the sky is JUST wet!

Welcome to Springtime in Alaska!
