I am so excited...I poked my head outside today and though it's a grey and blustery sort of day, it's warm. And, to make things even better, I discovered my crocuses and daffodils are blooming!
It reminds me of that delightful prophecy from Narnia about Aslan:
Wrong will be right When Aslan comes in sight; At the sound of his roar Sorrow will be no more;When he bares his teethWinter meets its death;And when He shakes His maneIt will be spring again.
--The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S. LewisYes, it's just over a week till the first day of spring. I can feel it coming, can't you?!?!
