Crocus time

We have snow melting fast, crocuses and snow drops both out in force (the snow drops have been around for weeks, under snow, out from under snow). I saw a few daffodils when I was out doing my Nordic walking, and a two week cold seems on the run. The other sign of spring is that Andy took a bike ride, all dolled up in red and blue high tech socks and shirt. Well, fairly high tech. I've ordered a computer for my mother, which I intend to set up here and have ready to run, complete with a dial-up connection and a word processor. I'm going to go down and visit her for a day sometime in the next two months and try to ease her into using the thing. She says she doesn't want it, but knows she needs it...
