MORROW — Change is in the air this week after a cold winter that brought two ice storms to metro Atlanta.
That change is the shifting of the seasons because Thursday marked the first official day of spring. Along with the warmer temperatures that will likely become more common in the coming weeks, new flora will become more visible.
At the William H. Reynolds Memorial Nature Preserve, budding daffodils and bloodroots were already beginning to blossom in the days leading up to spring’s arrival. Trees had also begun to sprout new leaves as well.
It was just a sample of the signs of spring that have begun to pop up all over Clayton County.
