Oh my! Winter didn't arrive with fury. Instead, it crept in and hunkered down for a prolonged stay. As such, Spring has been reluctantly waiting just beyond reach. However, yesterday...March 25th, the swallows returned! Spring will not be denied! Spring has finally imposed itself in the guise of fifty swallows, just a few days after a snowfall and on the same day as a 30 degree morning. Swallows! Spring! What shear pleasure! Life is okay.
