I smile for the quote and and your wonderful photo but we're having some days here with (in my opinion...) too high temperatures, + 5°C! And yes, the snow is melting but I hope that it won't disappear totally.
It's beginning to thaw here, too, but it will be awhile before it's gone.
At the rate it's melting, it might make a liar out of Earl !Spring - 1 month away. Can you tell ?
I'm copying that one and hanging it on my window! I need that reinforcement, for I think it may never go...
