Spring forward

Today we changed our clocks, so now it's almost 10pm but doesn't feel like it. I hate springing forward. It messes up my system somehow (even more than jet lag!)

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.
