The grass is greening up and the chives are growing in the garden. The trees have buds, but are a long ways from leaves, though. It always takes so long here next to the lake. The tulips on the south side of the house have buds, but they haven’t started changing color yet. I get so impatient! The temperatures are trying to warm up, but it seems the warmest days have coincided with days that I have to work, so I don’t get to enjoy it outside or by having windows open at home! I’m sure one of these days it will work out!
