Another weekend slipped past but wonderfully marked the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. It is, this year as always, a devisive subject. For myself, and sun lovers like me, it should be permanent and never change back. This is the proper time. My children get to go to school in the light of the new day…not in darkness (which really isn’t safe as well as rather cruel, to make kids get up andf go off into the darkness every morning) and when they come home instead of it being dusk before they can change and get outside… they have another hour to play and run and …oh yes America! run off both energy and calories. People need daylight. It is good for us. Helps us sleep better, keep us healthy. And Daylight Savings means more people see more light. This is a very good thing.
Meanwhile here in the Lowcountry things got so much warmer. Beautiful glorious sunny days in the 80s. Green grass. Flowers in bloom. BEES! Always so very happy to see the bees. My pear tree is in bloom and there they are…happily gathering pollen, bringing me a new crop of pears.
And so spring comes to the Lowcountry…bit by bit. A little more sunshine. A whisper of bees’ wings. Flowers and grass and the call of the ocean. It is so welcome here.
