On the day that we plant the pansies for the first time in any given year -- THAT is the day that Salem residents-in-the-know realize that Spring has officially arrived.
As our crew is outside working ,many locals honk their horns and give us the big thumbs up, because they know that this means winter is over. (Or ovah! as they say around here.)
Here are some snapshots of this much-longed for event this year:
