Thinking Spring

It's time to start thinking spring again. As I drove home from teaching today, I realized that the Sun angle is making it look more like spring and less like winter. It's interesting how something that you're only peripherally aware of can change the way you feel. It just feels more like spring --although not really spring-like yet. Although we don't have fresh snow, and there is a lot of bare ground visible, we do still have piles of icy snow left from the blizzard that dumped over a foot in most places. Still, the temperatures seems to creep up above freezing most afternoons, so things are wet, rather than frozen solid.

I've gotten a couple of catalogs, and I'm thinking about what I planted last year, and what I might want to add this year. It feels good.
