Flew back to Houston yesterday after a couple of weeks in London.
It was pretty chilly this trip, even though the calendar said it was March. Coats, gloves and scarves for most of my stay. Warmed up the day I was leaving, of course!
Try as I may to find signs of spring, I had to resort to finding color in the local florists' shops.
There, everything was abloom.
I did find a couple of signs of spring making an early appearance in London, here
and here. A couple of tulips showing off as first blooms, alongside a few crocus flowers.
I must admit it did feel really good coming back to temperatures of 70 degrees in my own backyard here in Houston. A few things changed while I was gone. The time sprung forward, the price of gasoline is now 10 cents higher, Liberty of London is now at my Target store, and the US Census was in my mailbox. Time to switch gears again for a few weeks. Good to finally greet you spring!
