Last Friday we had eight inches of snow but I am happy to report most of it has melted. There are signs of spring so I know it really must be coming! The tulip tree next door is several stories tall but looking up I see the buds have actually turned pink. Chives in containers on my deck are growing an inch per day even though it is still very cold outside. Once spring gets into motion, there is no stopping it.
We will have "an early Easter" this year...March 31. In times past a new Easter coat, hat and gloves would be in order since the weather would still be cold in New England. I loved Easter hats as a child and right into adulthood. It was a time when a new spring coat was worn through April. Now it goes into the 80's in April and stays there. Shorts and sandals come out even though there are no leaves on the trees. Times...and weather have changed.
In any event, the days are longer now and the sun is at a cheerful angle. We had company last weekend and it went from a snow storm on Friday to the sixties on Sunday. Lovely weather for day tripping! Hoping this weekend will be as lovely with sunny days and a lack of snow!
enjoy the day!
