Not Yet Spring

It is nice that it is warm enough for snow to start melting. Because there are some pretty large piles of snow out there:

But as welcome as this warmth, and the disappearance of the snow is, it’s not yet spring. The air doesn’t smell like spring. And yes, spring has a smell, just as autumn does, just as summer does, just as winter does.

I will take warm winter days over cold ones. But *sigh* it is still winter.
