The weather report of tonight says that we may get some more cold nights, but that winter will not come back. In mid-February you never know.
So I let my mind travel ahead, dreaming of the beginning of spring. When that shall be? Well, you will first see the many signs of spring in the gardens already in March, but it will take until April before the forest will show its springy beauty in such a way as you can see it here on this picture taken in April 2010.
