Cold winds that drove rain, snow, sleet and hail have kept spring at bay. Tiny leaves and winter's residue announce the spring which was scheduled to arrive about the same time as usual, give or take a day or two, but hasn't arrived in its full-blown state yet.
When the sun shimmers in a blue sky and the nights release their hold on frost, these bitty leaves will stretch and reach before branches sport small white blossoms and produce the sweetest of raspberries.
I am waiting - indoors with shoes, socks, fleece and hoodies. Has your newest season arrived on time?
