April showers bring May flowers. That's what they say at least, but they never say how many. Oh well, we'll see when May gets here, in the meantime, here's what I can tell you now, for whatever it's worth. Okay, so this might sound kind of stupid, but I swear that this past Monday I could smell spring in the air for the first time this year. I mean really smell it- it filled my nose with fragrance and my spirit with a little anticipation...for warmer weather, boating and even nothing in particular except that spring itself was finally here. I guess what makes this especially weird is that I "picked up the scent" while I was in downtown Lewes, in the rain, just leaving the Inn at Canal Square
. Maybe it was just wishful thinking on my part or maybe it was the flowers they had planted outside the Inn (lilacs I think), but whatever it was, it was a great feeling and it made me just a little happier than usual that I live at the beach- spring time is just better here.
