Today, at last there was the sense that spring may be on its way. This morning it was almost warm enough to go out without a coat, well a warm winter one anyway. By this afternoon, clouds had cleared and it was decidedly warm.
I know that this milder weather is a bit of an interlude, since it is still February. Apparently warmer winds blown from the Caribbean. No doubt that wind will swing around tomorrow or the day after, but it made a welcome change.
The daffodils in my garden are showing through the ground, but it will be a while before they are in bloom. Luckily there are plenty of daffodil bunches in the shops and until my own are ready I will continue to reach towards spring through them.
