It has been a long winter, and spring is slow in coming. (Is it too much to ask for 40 degrees at any point in March?!?) There are hopeful signs, though. We have daffodils, crocuses and even some tulips poking through. All the snowman decorations are packed away and the spring decor is out. The sun has shone enough to start melting the snow. Lincoln had fun "scooping" the water today.
