It's mud season! I love that line from Toot and Puddle's book. Perfectly approprite for this time of year. Another thing that I love about this time of year is waiting for the first hints of red in the stems of the maple trees (best seen from a distance). It really breaks up the grey and definitely means that warmer days are on the way. I am a firm believer that we would not apprecite the glory of spring with out it being preceeded by a few miserable months of wetness and cold.
Time for a change now...getting excited about all of the newness of spring.
