Winter's End?

It was in the low 60s yesterday, and mid-/upper-60s today. Today's actually quite pretty, blue and very bright. I have all the windows open as I type and the birds occasionally interject commentary.

Friday I saw some light-green buds on some bushes on the way to Kroger, and yesterday we noted buds on the Bradford pear trees. Today as we came past one of the houses on our usual route home, one with a stone retaining wall next to the driveway, we noted that the phlox plant on the wall is in bloom. So spring is on its way, but we still have a week of 50s and 40s to look forward to.
