After a frigid winter, the Crossroads is finally getting a splash of spring sunshine.

The wildflowers are blooming, and everybody is seeing a little more green. Despite the spring-like weather, March still brought a bipolar mix of both seasons.

Several March days brought 80-degree highs with nighttime lows dipping below freezing. March also experienced little rainfall, but there is still plenty of time for that.

As they say, April showers bring May flowers.
