I saw these when I was driving down Hippocket – everything is acting like it’s spring already. As soon as my rosebush puts out buds, it’s guaranteed to snow.

Aren’t they pretty though? I don’t feel bad about putting away Christmas when it feels like spring outside. I remember calling my Grandma years ago when it was like this, bragging about raking leaves in shorts in January. They had been shoveling snow off the driveway and weren’t amused one bit.
