It’s been miserable weather here (across the whole country actually – there’s been floods all over the place), and I’ve got a cold, and I’m totally over winter. But today the sun came out, and I spotted a tiny patch of violets (I think? Are they still violets if they’re white and not actually violet?) growing under the tree on the front lawn. Spring is still a very long way off, but it’s nice to have the reassurance it will arrive eventually.
