"There’s a sort of restlessness that occurs just before spring. A growing impatience, one that has us longing to cut winter off at the knees and run willy nilly into the hopefulness of spring. We stand at the edge of one season and peer longingly into the next—one that promises warmer weather, longer days, a life lived outside again. Spring. Suddenly, the signs are everywhere. Tiny pops of purple crocus in the unlikeliest places, clumps of happy yellow daffodils, trees that seem to explode with blooms. " — Andrea Jenkins, Issue #9
