Anyway, that's lovely and we have a little mild spell to go along with it. My forsythia branches just opened over the weekend. I feel like we just did a magic spell and made it happen. Wheee!

I'm glad you do, you do. It's hard to remember up here, the snow is so dirty and gray and ubiquitous. We had a mild day with sunshine a few days ago, but now it's back to perfectly cold and icy. You sure about this spring thing?

I'll go out and wave my arms northeasterly and try to waft you some! We had THAT snow last year. My sympathies, plow piles five feet high for ages...

Try this. Dig your magic emerald slippers out of the closet. While tapping the heels of them together chant, "There's no time like Spring. There's no time like Spring.. There's no time like Spring... I know you still need the lined, fuzzy numbers to actually keep your feet warm. But, I didn't see anything in the rule books that says magic slippers only work when their on your feet.
The warm weather has got to get up your way soon. There is a possible high of 80 here Saturday. We've had to hit the ground running. The people around here have exchanged their magic wishing slippers for garden clogs. They've changed the chant to, "There's no time. It's Spring! There's no time. It's Spring!"
Planted snow peas and lettuce today. This better not be one of Mother Nature's practical jokes where the punch line is something like snow flurries in March. She 's been known to pull stunts like that. (Jim)

"Planted snow peas and lettuce today." Wow ... magic words. It seems to be thawing a bit up here. It's slushy instead of snowy. Nobody's putting away their winter clothes yet, although all day you hear the sounds of icicles and heaps of slushy snow sliding off roofs. The trick is to melt it slowly enough so the ground can absorb it. Last year (or the year before, or both?) we got Federal Disaster funds because there was SO MUCH RAIN and melted snow at once; everybody's basement flooded. The water table is really high around here.
