Wednesday, April 2
Good thing I bought that spring coat: today it was still 10 degrees at 7 p.m. I'm tempted to pack away my winter boots and pretend there's no way we could get snow in April (or May).
A single coltsfoot has raised it's head in my yard. It's the first one I've seen. They always make me happy! Snowdrop is my favourite spring bulb - if I ever have a garden, I will surely have some snowdrops in there - but coltsfoot is really a sign of spring to me.
(The Finnish name translates roughly as widow's leaf - nothing to do with colts here.)
The last of snow and my new super comfy Clarks - oh how lovely it is to walk in light shoes!
