Is it really possible that it’s finally happening? We reached the high 50s yesterday and it’s already 66°F (19°C) at 1:30 pm today. And that longed-for feeling is finally in the air. The deep purple crocus gave up trying to stay in bloom, and the white one bravely kept up the effort through yesterday, but it too has faded now.
Also, the daffodil shoots are coming on strong again, and there seem to more than ever this year. I think they must have grown a whole inch yesterday. They are still too young to blossom, but it looks like it won’t be long at all now.
I saw the first house wren late Wednesday and wanted to get a photo, but by the time I was back at the window with my long lens, it had disappeared for the night. I heard it again briefly early yesterday morning, but then there was no further sign of it. And today is CD’s non-work day, so we’re planning to get a good start on the necessary YardWork. I, for one, am looking forward to it. May your days also warm appreciably very soon now—and happy spring!
