Primavera Watch

I'll probably bring the Hundred Year Blizzard down on Dee Cee for saying this, but walking up to the office this morning it occured to me that Winter seems to have shot her bolt.

It's certainly chilly out, but it isn't frigid anymore. And the wind that kicks up at the end of the season and seems to blow non-stop until the middle of April appears to have started in.

Also, I was watching the goldfinches at the feeder the other morning. I'd swear they were starting to get their yellow back.

I felt entirely too crappy to get out into the garden last weekend. Tomorrow, with any luck, I'll manage it. I'm sure the first thing I'll do is start rooting around among the tulips by the front walk to look for signs of impending growth.
