I’m ready for spring—ready to go hiking, to play tennis, to attend outdoor concerts and spend my mornings writing in the sunshine. I’m planning to grow geraniums and basil, among other things, in the small container garden on my balcony. I’m ready for fresh air, green leaves, and summer thunderstorms, ready for bare feet and iced tea and trips to the farmers market.

What about you? Are you looking forward to spring? What’s your favorite part of the season?

Lastly, a Sunday ROW80 check-in…
