Spring is here! (well, sort of)

The snow is melting, and our temperatures have been in the 40s all day. The light of the sun in stronger, and there is a real feel of spring in the air.

Of course, this is all an illusion. This early in February, we can easily get walloped with a blizzard or two before winter well and truly leaves us alone for a few more months.

That said, I don’t have the patience to wait until April or May (or perhaps even June) for some springtime. I have to make a little of my own.

Does anyone know what this is? I don’t, but I think it’s beautiful when it’s in bloom.

A wonderful touch of spring. I also brought in some forsythia, which is the other green blob at the end of the garden. Fabulous for the handful of days it’s in bloom, but rather dull the rest of the year. In the house, though, it helps me deal with the next few weeks (months) of winter.
