Signs of spring in the neighborhood

From this past weekend: The stream on the Glacial Hill trail at the Mass. Audubon Sanctuary in Natick was no longer frozen over, so you had to use the rocks to get across; new buds were appearing in slightly warmer parts of the garden; and the ducks at Crystal Lake in Newton finally found a bit of water in which to swim.

Today will be sunny and in the 50's. Is it really spring? Well, in Boston, you are never quite sure, but St. Patrick's Day is the traditional day to plant peas in the vegetable garden. Did you plant yours yesterday?

Sorry I missed you on Dan Rea's show. Is there a way to get a transcript or podcast?
