The saint’s day gives us the first green of the year — plus an Old Country lesson in sustainability
With spring one more tantalizing week away, we’re grasping at straws that bespeak the awaited season.
Meteorological winter is over and temperatures rising, sometimes imperceptibly, but inevitably until July, our hottest month, has us wishing for a trip to last winter’s icehouse. Peepers and their amphibian brethren are singing, as you know or will on reading this week’s Creature Feature. Crocuses are blooming, at least in some sunny yards. Daffodils are rising, their leaves now standing four to six inches above ground.
