Spring is finally here....(kind of)

We had a long winter, a very long winter. Not quite the fight-for-survival long winter that Laura Ingalls Wilder had but a long one none the less. 

Most of the past several months looked like this. 

Needless to say everyone has been eagerly looking forward to spring. Even people like me who prefer winter. The signs of spring are all around us, green popping out, flowers starting to bloom, eyes itching, nose running, asparagus shoots popping out of the ground. 

We had a few really warm days, so warm I was tempted to turn the air conditioner on. But now we are back to chilly spring weather, sunny but cool enough to need a fire in the morning and evening. The cold hasn't left us completely but spring is here and we survived the long winter!

'til next time...
