Quote du jour/Samuel Taylor Coleridge
'Tis a month before the month of May, and the spring comes slowly up this way.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Coleridge's words are apt as I look out my front door this afternoon.
We've lost some snow since the last snowstorm, but it is coming down strong and steady today. Michael lives an hour south of us and they got 8 inches overnight. March has been consistently cold with intermittent snowfalls and a blizzard mid-month. Those red-winged blackbirds haven't come back. There is no sight or sound of robins or woodcocks. We've had some sunshine but the wind has been cold. Three deer come by each evening for their daily meal. The usual winter birds are still eating heartily at the feeders.
But this won't last. A few warm, sunny days and we will have forgotten all about snow!
