spring has sprung

March 1st, 2012

It seems as if spring is here earlier than usual. Actually, it also seemed as if winter never really came this winter. It snowed only about three or four times and the snow never really stuck. Though I am not known to like frigid, snow-filled winters, I have to admit, I kind of feel jipped out of the glorious joy and excitement that I usually get when spring begins replacing winter. It has been a bizarre winter, indeed.

I saw our snowdrops gleaming their white buds this morning while eating breakfast. They took me by surprise, since I realized they must have been growing for at least a week or two already in order to already have buds. However, I guess I shouldn’t be so surprised that anything should grow in this very mild weather. Time to start the crops? Probably. How exciting!
