98/267

Once again, it is overcast and cold freezing. Here it is April 8 and we are barely above the freezing point. This winter is never ending. We remain bundled in coats and our hands continue to need the warming protection of gloves. Even the spring blooms remain in their embryonic state, covered by their scales all in the hope of protecting the delicate parts of the bud.

We don't even have buds on the trees yet! I REALLY want some warmer weather too. :)

We had a nice day today and the next few days are supposed to be even nicer (temperature wise - although rain is expected). So it is coming. Just seems a little slow this year.

Beautiful color and dof!
I wish I could curl up inside my protective scale and hide from this never ending winter!
