Wriggling Toward Spring
For me the real harbinger of Spring is the earthworm. When they all appear after a good rain, you know Spring is on its way.
This morning they were out in full force, slowly wriggling their way across the driveway. You have to wonder if they are trying to go somewhere, or whether they are just so happy to be out in the open that they just have to wiggle.
Which makes me ask where earthworms spend the rest of the year? It’s this damp pre-Spring time when I most often see them, not thinking about them otherwise. Their rather albino appearance might indicate a life mostly without sun.
Have you seen the earthworms yet this year?
