The Reason

This is the reason why over the past week it has felt that Spring has not sprung in our part of the world.

Look closely at the hills in the background.

Okay, I'll help you out ...

Still can't see it? How about this?

That is snow. Fresh snow. More than we often see this low even during winter. And when we do see it, we moan and complain about how cold it is.

It's been cold. Too cold for Spring.

But as the picture shows, Spring might be able to redeem herself ... if the sunny afternoon is anything to judge by.

Let's hope so anyway.
