Every day I notice more and more colour returning to my winter world. With every sighting of another bloom my spirit lifts a little. Soon, soon it will be spring!

Now, I am not usually a great lover of spring. I think we get our most unpredictable weather in spring. It's the season full of nasty tricks. You are enticed into believing the worst of winter is over by a show of spring blossoms, then, wham, there's sure to be a nasty storm. Any show of the sun and feeling of warmth has to be treated with great caution because any minute it could all change. I have been known to mutter, "You can keep your daffodils and cute little lambs - I hate spring!"
But for now that doesn't matter. The colour is more than welcome.
