Hallelujah to Sunshine and to the First Day of Spring

Please Listen to a  Great  Spring-Flavoured Song Below.  It Should Make You Feel Good.

From Doug Draper at Niagara At Large

Posted March 20th, 2023 on Niagara At Large

Earlier this March, on a morning after we had another overnight dump of icy mush, I opened the front door to another dark, cold hour or so of shoveling the front stoop, sidewalks and driveway.

And in the middle of all this, my first robin of the year landed in a nearby bush.

“What are you doing here now, beautiful bird? How are you going to find anything to eat on this frozen ground?

Since then I have been putting out food each morning for the robin and counting the days do spring which, for a person like me who doesn’t mix well with dark and cold, could not come soon enough.

So how great it was this March 20th to wake up to sunshine on a day when spring is officially here at 5:24 p.m. You can finally almost see the buds growing larger and larger on the trees.

So happy spring everyone as I leave you with one of my favourite spring-flavoured songs, ‘A Beautiful Morning’, by one of my all-time favourite groups of the 1960s, ‘The Rascals’.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as you and the robin in my yard enjoy the warmer, sunnier days ahead.

And to Rascals drummer Dino Danelli, who died recently and who  was often ranked in music magazines on their top-100 lists as one of the best drummers in the world, Rest in Peace.
