It’s an unusual winter but unlike others who report that milder than usual temps make them feel like spring is in the air we are just in less of a deep freeze than normal. But, it is cold enough to not feel like temperatures that make you want to shed layers. The occasionally very mild temperature have melted any existing snow just to freeze over again. The 5 inches of snow in my garden are covered with a 1/2 inch ice crust. Makes for some interesting walking…. The neighbors’ kitty is better off with built-in spikes and claws herself elegantly over the ice.
Lunch is still with those gorgeous Florida strawberries, hummus and pepitas.
