Spring seemed to be here yesterday. The temperature climbed up to 60 degrees, with rain most of the afternoon. I used the rain as an excuse to stay indoors and catch up on much needed cleaning...and a little reading.
Flowers, especially daffodils, are bursting forth all over the village. The tulips are poking their leaves up also.
But spring is fickle. My heat pump came on last night, and I awoke to temperatures only in the low forties. Nevertheless, as Molasses Creek sings, "the back of the winter is broken, and light lingers long at the door."
