It's forty-ish here in Hell's Kitchen, and daffodils that we planted last year
in DeWitt Clinton Park & the Clinton Community garden are starting to rise and
bloom - my crocuses are coming up nicely, cheering a pretty grey day.
So this note from Coquitlam, British Columbia, where it has to be much colder
was particularly cheering:

Seems like the time of looking at plant catalogues, throwing potato peels into
steaming compost and longing for color is coming to an end.
