It’s an Epidemic

with 8 comments



It’s effecting hundreds of people. Football season is over, we’ve had at least two full days of sunshine and temperatures are finally rising above freezing. With these kinds of conditions I found people aimlessly wandering in Inniswood Gardens yesterday afternoon, all of them infected with “Spring Fever.” Parents had the youngest toddler in the stroller while the older siblings were burning up energy running along the trails. Couples were walking hand-in-hand as they soaked up the warm sunshine. Any park bench which had been covered in snow and ice last week was now welcoming people to sit and listen to the birds sing. The melting snow was now revealing a carpet of green grass. Tulip sprouts were breaking through the dark soil as they stretched upwards for the suns rays. I even drove by the Dairy Queen and noticed a few people medicating themselves with ice cream. Yup, Spring Fever was everywhere. I think I may have it!!! And, just to be sure I medicated myself with one of those Blizzards, the Midnight Truffle.

Waiting and Ready

  1. If you have to succumb to an illness, it doesn’t get any better than spring fever!

  2. I think it is spreading across the U.S.

  3. These are wonderful images of the edge of Spring forcing Winter to retreat. It was a gorgeous day here… no ice cream for me yet, but soon!

  4. Hi Monte,

    Love the images. I can feel Spring in the air, especially this past weekend. We enjoy above 50 degrees both Sat and Sun. It was great to see people out in shorts, already! However, like all good things, our weekend is supposed to be cool and rainy. Perhaps a trip to a museum this weekend is in order.

    • It is clouding up as we speak. Rain possible for the next few days.
