* crocuses in bloom
* lilies, irises and tulips sending up their shoots
* strawberry plants put out their leaves and vigorously (re)taking over their bed
* buds on the willow and the lilacs
* exchanging winter coats for fleeces and rain jackets
* lots of planning for *next* year’s school (which is, of course, much more interesting than what we’re doing right now)
How’s the change of the seasons where you are?
