This week I was surprised to see first one redbud in bloom and then two more close by. Then I reminded myself that it is almost March and really not too early to see these early bloomers.

The end of February
February is winding down and this week I began to see the change (if you can call it that) in seasons. We really don't have spring here in South Texas: it just gets warm and greens up. It has seemed to me that this year we've had a more normal winter with cooler temperatures, but already we've had little spells where it has warmed up and then cooled down again after a few days. I have to admit that this year I have enjoyed these winter days even though I do not like to be cold. While I welcome the coming spring I also know that I'm going to miss these cozy winter evenings by the fire with the dogs piled around me.
