In the northern hemisphere, we are looking forward to Spring.
Should that be capitalized? It's a very special time of year, so I'm going with a capital S.
The calendar says Spring is still over a week away, but the weather is variable so it can feel like Spring one day and winter the next. Notice that winter does not rate a capital w. It is not a special time of year. It is just a marathon of ice and snow.
But today is a mild 6C (43F) which feels positively balmy because there is no wind and the sun is shining.
And when I was driving home from an appointment, I saw a Sure Sign of Spring.
It wasn't a crocus or daffodil, it wasn't someone wearing shorts, it wasn't a yard sale.
It was a dog riding in the back seat of a truck, with his nose poked out of the open window, sniffing for all he was worth.
People aren't the only animals who grow weary of certain seasons.
Like I said, I was driving at the time, so I couldn't get a picture. Also, my camera was at home. I never realized I'd need it so badly on such a short drive.
In honour of the doggo who made my day, here are a few images from Pixabay, where you can find free photos of just about any topic.
Not a car or truck window, but still a window, still a chance to have all the sniffs.
I hope you have a good week with lots of interesting stuff to inhale.
Well now, that didn't exactly come out as I intended, but what the heck.
Whatever turns your crank. I won't judge.
