In spite of the snow still on the ground, I was happy to see the flowers starting to bloom!

It's been a nice Winter and I could stand another month of it. But I know how much Mr. Switzer dislikes it so it's all right if Spring comes soon. I want him to be happy so he will continue to write his column. I just wish the infernal meddlers would leave the time alone though. I cannot stand daylight savings time.

Couldn't agree more about the time change-it is not
needed anymore.
I am in the minority because I enjoy winter and will take it any day over summer which brings oppressive heat and humidity. The thought of waking up and it being 70 degrees and 100 percent humidity at 6 a.m. and knowing it will only get worse makes me pine for the few weeks of actual winter we really have. And---a fact that most folks cannot wrap their minds around-we live in Ohio -not the south (thank god!)-we are supposed to have winter- but we don't get a real winter here and haven't for years- a Late November to Late March season. What we do get is a May-October never ending period of heat and humidity I will take winter.

We moved to Florida 7 years ago. While I don't miss the snow and cold, I do very much enjoy your descriptions of everything. Spring has been slow arriving here too. I have a new bouginvilla (sp) that I was sure didn't survive the freeze, but it is showing growth from the roots. What a thrill!
