We've pretty much given up on winter around here. It's hard to remember that it's still February when you're outside in shirtsleeves working on garden chores that usually belong to the beginning of April. Can we start planting peas yet?
Not that everybody was working, of course:
While yesterday really was quite warm, the effect is at least partly psychological: no snow and bright sunny skies make us think of spring, even when the temperature is still coolish. So last weekend we had a picnic!
Of course, as I type these words it's just started snowing. But we know it won't last!
