My heart goes out to those of you still stuck in frigid weather. This year must have been a real endurance test.
Here, it’s been the complete opposite….winter never really happened. Yes it rained and the weather cooled but cold never came. Great for us since we were able to work on the house non-stop but, apparently, not so great for the farmers since cold winters are important for eliminating damaging insects and pathogens that can later affect the crops.
Seems like “normal” weather patterns are a thing of the past pretty much all around the world. It’s not good but we may as well enjoy what we get when we can.
Like savouring the season’s first ice cream at a beach-side ice cream parlor;
enjoying a ride on a new bike (yes, that’s John coming up the hill);
sitting out on the patio relaxing, listening to/playing music;
admiring the beauty of trees in bloom…
