What Month Is It?

 
Just a few days ago, it was in the 80s, too warm for my taste in May. The catkins on the white birch were in full bloom, and you can feel the sunshine.

Today? Have we gone back to March? The catkins are fading to brown, and the leaves are unfurling, but what are those white lines angling across the view? Hmmm

It seems like winter just doesn't want to let go this year. One way or another, spring will be here to stay. Hopefully that will happen before summer.

It appears that winter does not want us to become complacent. I'd just like to be warm.
