But that's not my real reason for writing today. I'm writing because yesterday it was warm enough to sit on the back porch, and while doing that, I was looking around in the backyard and noticed the crocuses are blooming! The little flowers are so small - about the size of dimes (or twenty cent Euros) - but they're so happy-looking.
This is the first sign of Spring in these parts, so I'm wondering if it's really here, or just a tease. Time will tell.
