BANGOR - Today marks the first day of Spring. While this year it may look a little more white outside than it has in the past, we went out in search of Spring.

And folks are celebrating the start of a new season.



Tim Davis, a grower, says they started opening the greenhouses at Sprague's Nursery, the very first day of this month, and will open four more this coming week.




He adds that new life like this, is a sure sign of Spring.




Meanwhile, members of the Hammond Street Senior Center were also rejoicing, celebrating both the Senior Center's birthday, and the first day of Spring.




Member, Nancy Manship says the cupcake sale is one of their regular fundraisers, but also a breath of fresh air for some members who haven't had a chance to get out this winter.




Despite what mother nature may have up her sleeve next, most are optimistic that warmer days are right around the corner.
