It's almost impossible to convey my feelings on this. I took this photo this morning, 19 Feb. There is no snow on the ground. That's amazing. There hasn't been any snow on the ground. That's unbelievable. The snow drops are blooming. That's impossible!
Just to check my memory, I went back in time to look at photos I'd taken about this time in years past.
