We've had a fairly warm, sunny week, which means, among other things, that the later sunsets have been especially noticeable, and the higher sun during the afternoon has been feeling very nice and warm. Today has been mostly overcast (though pretty warm: it's 52 right now) , and it just started drizzling an hour or so ago- not enough to pool up and run off, but enough to dampen everything up a little. But between the moisture, the warmth and the sunshine this week, the crocuses (croci?) have been popping up everywhere. That last one sort of foreshadows the daffodils. The next few days look to be wet and cooler- though still in the upper forties. But the daffodils' buds are definitely up and swelling. I suspect they'll start bursting open as soon as we get a few more warm, sunny days... probably within the next week or so.
This is almost the beginning of my 29th year in Oregon, and there are still some things I'm not really accustomed to. Moss and ferns growing in the trees. Months with no rain in the summer. And flowers in the middle of February. Keep in mind that the town I live in is farther north than Toronto, Ontario. You wouldn't know it from our winter climate, but it is.
