This quote from Dickens so eloquently describes yesterday afternoon:

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:
when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
~ Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

The sun felt like late spring as my husband and I sat soaking in the warmth. As soon as we moved toward the shade,  the sharp  breeze gave us a chill. And that was my clue that spring is getting close. I'll be working in the yard, getting blisters on my hands before I know what happened.


  1. What a great connection - modern day Dickens soaking in the warmth among the cold breeze. I love the connection!

  2. I plan on getting some blisters soon! Love getting back out in the garden!

  3. Me too. Making plans for a few raised beds in the garden this year.
