It rained overnight quite hard. I woke up once during it and it was nice to hear the sound. Today is practically like spring. Large soft clouds fill s cerulean sky. Birds are chirping and singing. The air is sweet, warm and fresh. I spied some new shoots coming up, their dark green turning more vibrant and the bulge of the flower beneath the stem becoming visible. The high today is in the 50s, but tomorrow it's only expected around freezing point. What a roller coaster of a winter!
