It’s long been observed that spring is worth waiting for, and we Mainers are always grateful, because we have to wait for so long. In fact, Maine usually has no spring at all; it stays winter until the first of June, then suddenly it’s hot and foggy. This year we are having a real spring – drawn out and slow growing: the mad professor of the forsythia, the shy crocuses, the flirting daffodils.
