This morning the sun shone briefly before it took its sentinel position behind the clouds. But at least it rose much earlier than it had two months ago when we were just recovering from Christmas. The back of winter should be broken, we can look forward to more sunshine, I hope at least.

But of course, like everything this crazy winter, it didn't last. About four inches of snow last night, and then rain today, so we're walking in puddles at the moment.
Climate change, right?

Hope you have a lovely day....

Some what paradoxically, house plants do very well in the winter here. That's probably because, while the days are short and it's cold outside, usually it's very sunny. My two hibiscus get a growth spurt most years around now, while my lantana that never blooms outside in the summer because there's so much shade, sets out a few blossoms.
A couple of years ago I took this photo of a restaurant window where flowers were bravely blooming even though the snow was piled deep on the street. There's a lesson there, I think We manipulate our living conditions with both good and bad consequences.
