For those eager for some warmer weather, here's a quick roundup of all things spring:

Capital Weather Gang forecast a high temperature topping 60 degrees on Wednesday, and signs of spring abound around the District. Spring planting has begun and landscapers are out in abundance, clearing winter's dead leaves and laying mulch and planting blooms.

Unfortunately for allergy sufferers, this means pollen is starting to rise as well. The Gang also posted a roundup of the last 10 years of March weather and what it might mean for 2011.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival is gearing up to kick off on March 26, although this year they will be charging a fee in an attempt to reduce overcrowding and enable them to bring in more performers from Japan in future festivals.

Going out Guide's Spring Arts Preview has best bets for this spring in dance, pop music, museums and more. Our Nationals Journal will keep you up to speed on baseball's spring training.

Check out our "signs of spring" gallery to see what Post reporters have spotted and add your own springtime photos. What are you seeing out there?
