I just went out for a run and while the temperature was well shy of the balmy lower 50s we've been promised for today, I came across a sure sign of spring: purple crocuses blooming in a neighbor's front lawn.
A few chest-high piles of snow dot the same street, but I'm looking on the bright side.
If you need more convincing, I suggest downloading Tony Bennett and Bill Evans' "You Must Believe In Spring" and considering this:
"The Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts is now accepting applications for the 33rd annual Baltimore Farmers' Market & Bazaar. Space is available for farmers, crafters, concessionaires and street performers."
I received that notice via e-mail.
But back to news picked up on my run through Southwest Baltimore: that security detail outside Sheila Dixon's house seems finally to be gone. Maybe the cops have moved on to someone who really deserves protection, like my pigs' feet squealer.
