Spring Can't be Far

After a wonderfully snowy winter, spring must surely be right around the corner.
But, I wouldn’t hang my hat on these crocus that have sprung up in the past couple of days.
Spring Crocus in Highlands
It seems every year about this time we hear people saying they are tired of winter and ready for spring. Spring is indeed right around the corner because the calendar says so, but the potential for another beautiful snow (or two) lingers on.

When thinking about the snow we have had this year it feels like spring has been a long time in coming, but actually it is on our doorstep. The crocus are blooming, the tulips are up and starting to bud and the buds on the trees are really beginning to swell.

Existing business owners in Highlands are making their moves to get ready for a new season and new shop owners are beginning to pull off the “For Rent” signs that have been in windows since the fall.

Highlands is and always has been a seasonal town and summer is the season most people flock back. Not because merchants don’t try to entice them in the “off season’, but for numerous reasons, not the least of which is the potential for rough weather and all the problems that it can bring.

Now is the time to make plans to come to Highlands, and any time of the years is great, just come ready for fun - and remember... if you run out of milk at 10:00 p.m. there is no place to go!
