Anxious farmers are beginning to plow and warm their soil with row covers, while nurseries have cleared their winter stock and are waiting, just waiting, until its safe to unleash their plants on another spring. The crocuses have not yet bloomed, but the ospreys are beginning to return. And we will go on waiting for a sure and honest sign of spring.
