In an hour or so spring will be here.  Don't get me wrong.  I love spring, but I am a bit skeptical this year.  It doesn't feel like spring and it doesn't look like spring.  In fact, it looks just like winter to me.

This is the view from my front window.  Still lots of snow.

I decided to work on my 'green quilt'.  I need green in my life right now.  This quilt is from a 2005 calendar by Fons and Porter.  This was the quilt for March.  There were no instructions, so I just made it from 2.5 inch squares and bigger pieces of all the greens I had in my stash at that time.  When I ran out of green fabrics, I put it away and just found it again this year.  I have more greens now, so I think I can finish it.

It's called, 'Scraps of Green'.

It is only 2C today and we have had snow flurries all morning.  But look what I found in front of my house. A patch of crocuses, just showing their green shoots above the ground.  They are only a foot or so from the house, so they are in a warm zone.  Usually they are blooming by now. But not this year.  Still, I'll take any sign of spring that I can get, especially if it is green.  
So bring spring on!  To this year's winter I say, 'enough is enough!

Your crocusses remind me to clear my front garden from snow and branches to let a crocus get out here and there.We had huge piles of snow everywhere. It did melt away a bit. Can't wait for spring.
