Like discovering a false summit, the last month felt like a mountain expedition, with us - the poor climbers trudging through snowstorm after snowstorm, wondering whether we'd ever reach our destination - SPRING!
Today was glorious, warranting both sunscreen and summer hats on our walk down by the river. Even the snakes were out in droves, slithering here and there across the warm paved trail. Robin and I took the kids down to the river trail to feel the sun on our own cheeks after several days of being sick at home. Here they are watching a family of snakes try to camouflage themselves in last year's leftover leaves.
I'm hoping the weather will stick around for at least a few days, at least long enough to give our poor stunted daffodils a chance this season.
