Spring on the Gulf Coast
It’s short…Spring on the Gulf Coast I mean. The only thing shorter than Spring on the Gulf is Winter…but I digress. Those 3 – 4 weeks each year are my favorite. For almost 30 days we can oooh and ahhhh over tulips, hyacinth, daffodils, even narcissus in all their glorious splendor. The air is at less than 99% humidity and you know what that means! That’s right! Women can go outside and their hair doesn’t immediately mushroom into some 1960’s bouffant! Where do you think the term ‘big hair’ came from?
Residents here, those not newly arrived, know to make the most of those few weeks. Yardwork, roofing, outside painting – all of these are best done in Spring, unless dehydration holds no fear for you. Yep, no mosquitoes, bluebonnets rolling out their carpet along Texas highways, Little League, Girl Scout Cookies…there’s no doubt, my Friend, God blessed
