This week, the weather has decided to put time in reverse. After weeks and weeks of sunshine and warm weather that melted almost all the piles and piles of snow, we woke up Wednesday to almost a full-fledged snowstorm. The temperature has also dropped from a balmy 10c to below 0c. The snow is still here and the temperatures likely won't rise until the start of next week. I know it's winter's very last hurrah before spring, but it is still depressing. So, yesterday I decided I needed to buy a couple of tulips and a lilly - a little encouragement for spring to come on back.
