Daylight has returned to my morning bike commute - well, only at the end, and I commute somewhat rarely this time of year, but still true! We had what may prove to be our last snowfall overnight, not enough to cover the lawn but there nonetheless. This is putting a cramp on the first flowers that are trying to come out and play; a few crocus have emerged and more shoots are shooting as I type this. Hopefully we will devote more time to the yard this year, it's been neglected and it shows. But perhaps a showshoe trip or two first? Not until my bursitic knee relaxes again.. this is quite a pain!
