Spring

Spring weather continues; there's even a tiny amount of cherry blossom on my cherry tree - it blossomed the year I planted it, but not for the last couple. Looks like it is finally getting established. Also snowdrops growing in the middle of my lawn thanks to the blasted squirrels transplanting them. I managed to eat out on the patio for the first time this year - after rescuing the patio table from over-wintering in the shed. It was just a tad too cold for what I was wearing (heavy shirt), so I had to come indoors when I started shivering, but I might have been okay in something heavier or doing something more active. Still, it's a sign winter's probably done with. OTOH I'm  heading north next weekend and 3 or 4 years ago I did that at this time and went from breakfast on the patio here, to a blizzard there. I really wasn't dressed for that.

My next door neighbour was chatting over the fence and commented he's seen so little of me over winter he thought I'd emigrated. I reminded him winter isn't my favourite season for being out of doors. Neither of us has yet spoken with the neighbour on the other side of me, who moved in in October, but they're out of the house at 6AM and not back til 8PM, so when's that going to happen? Especially as they tend to spend most of the weekends out as well. Maybe we'll catch up with them sometime this month.
