Or at least it is as far as I'm concerned. There may still be snow on the ground, but the clocks have changed, so I drive in the evening in daylight, and yesterday even drove home with the window open and rock on the stereo! That's spring in my world.
Plus, last week was the first annual FLOW Green Fair (Franklin Lakes, Oakland, and Wyckoff, NJ), organized and hosted by the three Environmental Commissions, with participation from a lot of terrific groups, like the Northeast NJ Beekeepers Association, the Shade Tree Commissions, the Green Teams, Princeton Hydro, Hackensack Riverkeepers, the NJ Audubon Society... you get the idea.
It was pretty awesome.
And I got to face paint! I'm on the Franklin Lakes Environmental Commission, but since they and the Green Team had all the organizational stuff well covered, we figured I could better serve by doing what I like most and do best. And I was a pretty big hit - kept busy all day long!
Then again, so was everyone else!
If you're in the area and didn't make it this year, definitely make plans to come next year! And if you did come? Well, bring the family again!
