It is that time again where winter is giving way to spring. This winter has been longer and colder than the last few that I have experienced here in Montana. With Vernal Equinox upon us next week, spring becomes official, hopefully opening the door to warmer weather and new growth. On sunny days, when I step outside on my back deck I hear a chorus of birds singing and I am reminded once again that spring is coming. Although, a few more days of warm sunshine are needed to melt the amazing amount of snow still in my yard.
