Hey, I found one!!!! A sign of spring, right now happening in my town of Cedar Falls, Iowa. It's indoors! It's at my local florist, Bancroft's, just around the corner.
Bancroft's is a locally owned, one-of-a-kind storefront with a greenhouse out back. Tuesday, when I dropped by, the owner's helpers (old friends from the a small neighboring town) were busily potting geranium sets from flats into pots. While snow still swirled outside and humongous piles of old, dirty snow mounded on the curb and sidewalk in front, spring planting season was beginning in the humid warmth of the greenhouse.
