It is spring here now for sure.  I have seen hummingbird moths and lots of birds.  The fruit trees here in the valley are blooming.  The grass is growing faster than you can imagine.  

 

Since early December, when we came back from the US, there have been less than 10 nights with temps falling below freezing.  Now it is in the 40s at night and high 60s during the day.  We are still running the heat but only because Ben is cold (he doesn’t move around a lot) and there is too much pollen to have the windows open during the day to let with the warm breezes come in.
