The dark days of winter gradually are coming to an end. A friend offered the following report: "During most of the winter, my day begins in darkness. I'm rousted from bed by the harsh sound of an alarm. But on recent mornings, there's been a pleasant change. Not only is it growing light when I open my eyes, but I am being serenaded to consciousness by a cheery cardinal who greets the sun in fine voice. "I know that, as spring grows nearer, the dawn serenade will probably precede my appointed hour for awakening.

Springtime in Paris: A harsh winter, with unusually heavy snows, is abating. People on the streets are shedding their heavy togs for cooler, lighter-weight clothes. But for designers and followers of the fashion world, springtime in Paris means the return of wool, tweeds and fur, for spring is when fall ready-to- wear collections are unveiled. And for hundreds of designers, buyers, reporters and fashion devotees, it is the best time to be in Paris. It appears that French designers, like their Italian counterparts who showcased designs in Milan earlier this month, are calling for shorter skirts and more subdued silhouettes than they did last fall.

Fans of Eric Rohmer don't need a weather forecast to know what to expect of Tale of Springtime, the first of four films the director plans to devote to the seasons. It may be sunny now, but ominous clouds and the threat of rain are sure to follow. In this characteristic and highly insightful reading of the emotional dilemmas and threatened hopes of two young women in what is outwardly the most romantic setting imaginable - Paris in the springtime - Rohmer offers another movie in which words matter more than images.

Jasmine. Honeysuckle. Suntan oil. Chlorine (for the swimming pool). And above all, barbecued meat. Springtime is dawning in the Southern Hemisphere, and already the aromas of summer are starting to waft over the city - or at least, over the high walls surrounding the big houses of the northern suburbs where most of Johannesburg's white people live. Despite the recent revolutionary changes in South Africa, age-old local rituals associated with the passing of the seasons are being performed with a reassuring familiarity.

In winter, and particularly this bitter winter, it is difficult to visualize springtime with its gentle aura of dogwood trees, the soft blush of cherry blossoms, and the lamplet glow of daffodils. Yet, with Sunday's sunrise the doors to the Pennsylvania Convention Center will swing open to the annual Philadelphia Flower show and voila, a festive floral paean to the spirit of springtime will greet thousands and thousands of visitors from all walks of life. You might possibly be able to hear them singing their wintertime escape tunes.

It's springtime in January and when the weather goes quackers, little Brandi Ann Crawford decides it's the right time for a popcorn break with the ducks and seagulls along Kelly Drive. Unfortunately, balmy 50-plus temperatures end today, with a projected high of only 44.

AS READING native Taylor Swift has matured as an artist, there was no doubt she would one day outgrow her tween/teen fan base. One of the groups seemingly adding to the multitudes of Swifties is the alt-right. Yes, the alt-right (a/k/a witty, white supremacists for the social-media age, or the guys who wear white sheets made from 600-thread-count genuine Egyptian cotton) have chosen Taylor as their "Aryan goddess" icon, reports the Washington Post. The Post says the elevation of Swift began three years ago when teen Emily Pattinson used Pinterest to combine pics of Taylor with quotes from Hitler . BuzzFeed said the whole thing was a joke.

So far, what has passed for spring in the Philadelphia area this year has been relatively calm and much too dry. Yet Farmers Insurance reports that examined claims in 2013 and 2014 showed that spring accounted for more than one-third of all homeowners' claims nationwide during that two-year period. April, May, and June saw a 52 percent increase in homeowners' claims over January, February, and March, the claims showed. Twenty-five percent of all homeowners' claims filed during the spring in Pennsylvania were for water-related issues.

Each spring, Philadelphia's tech start-up founders and promoters come blinking into the light, renting halls, and putting on shows in search of investors, clients, new hires, and public attention for it all. This town, for all its history of innovations (such as the first modern computer, ENIAC), has not grown into a world tech center like Palo Alto or Cambridge. Rather, it's a city "where technology gets commercialized," where medical and engineering scholars solve problems for software, telecom, drug, and investment companies, says Fairmount Partners investment banker Allen Born.

HAPPY Easter Monday and welcome to the season of renewal. Feel it in the air? There's a mayor's race with its wafting aroma of fresh ideas and promises of new strides for the city, especially in public schools. There's a "fresh-start" governor in Harrisburg with bold state plans to invest new money, especially in public schools. There's . . . oh, wait, what am I thinking? Who sees schools on the brink of a blossoming rebirth fed and watered with fresh ideas and new money?

"A MOST Wanted Man" is based on a John le Carre novel, possibly titled "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy With a Really Bad German Accent. " I regret to say that the accent belongs to the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman, starring here as Gunther, a German spy working to snare a possible terrorist financier, all while bucking bureaucrats and his own come-and-go accent - the movie is mysteriously in English, though almost no character in the movie would...

As the weather warms and the days lengthen, the long-awaited glory of spring has arrived with splashes of pink and yellow in the trees, with green leaves and buds bursting out all over. The gentle breezes beckon us outside, and colorful lighter fare beckons at the table. Paschal lamb and spring chickens are available at the market, but my tastes turn to veggies, especially the tender shoots, sprouts, and spears of spring. At this time of year, it's a snap to add a splash of brightness and pizzazz to every plate at every meal.

By B.G. Kelley The Dad Vail Regatta, the biggest intercollegiate rowing event, summons images of sleek sculls oared with precision by finely chiseled athletes. It presents an aesthetic springtime tableau on the glimmering, sun-spilled Schuylkill. The regatta, which begins today, is part of the sports DNA here. I've been going to Dad Vail since 1968. But these days I don't watch the races as much as I do the Canada geese - those birds with black heads and necks and white patches on their faces that come from Peter's Island and beyond to the banks of the Schuylkill to feed on the grass, to play, or simply to rest peacefully.

FEBRUARY is almost over, and winter will soon come to an end. Oh, sure, March might hit us with another cold day or two. We might even get a little snow. But let's be honest: February is winter's last hurrah, and when its dark frigid nights slip away, the cold will be replaced by something even worse: spring. Why do I prefer the icy-gray winter to the warm, bursting colors of spring? The answer is quite simple, really. During the winter, people stay in their houses. When spring arrives, people come out. And so do my allergies.
