I woke up this morning with an unusual sensation. Something felt different on the boat this morning. Then I sussed it, it was warm. There was no slight chill in the air. My nose was normal body temperature, not the cold little bump that normally takes it’s place all winter. Nope, it was definitely warm. No frost outside, no frozen solid canal, just ripples across the water, ducks paddling through it once more, happy to be over their ice skating phase.
Winter seems to be moving on, albeit slowly, but he’s on his way. Part of me is sad, I love those crisp, blue skies. I love the morning frosts, followed by clear, short winter days. But with the change in weather, comes the sign of spring, snowdrops are starting to bloom, daffodil stems are popping up left, right and centre. Even my tulips are starting to poke their heads out of their potted beds. Spring is on his merry way.| | | Next → |
