Today the sun is out and for once the wind isn't trying to saw people in half. It's enough even to tempt a fireside cat into the great outdoors to listen to the sparrows squabbling. Now the snow has finally gone, I can see just how much the garden needs tidying and for once, getting on with it instead of writing, won't be procrastinating. If anyone else has detected springlike signs in the air, get outside and breathe it in. You can sit in front of your computer tomorrow, by which time the sky might be gloomy again. This could be the best weather we get this month, so don't waste it! It isn't only plants that grow in spring, ideas blossom too.
