I'm taking this as a definite sign of spring. The past few days have been wonderfully warm (up into the 50s in the sun, and that feels warm!), full of sunshine and even making one think winter may actually be over.
Sure, we've still got snow on the ground (plenty of it in the woods), but it's melting each and every day now.
Papa Pea started pruning the apple trees this past week. Yes, he did.
Notice he's even without the several layers of clothing that he's had to don when working outside for the past many months? It was so warm he didn't even have a jacket on. Amazing.
By looking closely, we can even notice there are buds (okay, very small ones) on our big twin birch tree outside the kitchen window. I think we can safely say spring is on its way in the north woods!
