Hang in there…
Tomorrow will be slightly longer than today.
Next week you will notice that you have been noticing the birds singing.
In two weeks you can start looking out for early blossom and buds.
In three weeks there will even be signs of wildflowers.
In four weeks the maple sap will again start flowing.
In five weeks we will be celebrating the Vernal Equinox...
Please hang in there.
... and I hope you had a fun and flower filled Valentine's Day
