The bees are buzzing around the scylla and other early plants in the front yard, about two weeks earlier than usual.
People are enjoying the weather (even though we're about to go back to an 8 p.m. curfew in Montreal tomorrow night) but it's rather scarey. Sucha warm, dry, early spring is very unusual--but it's entirely possible that will become the norm.
Climate change, of course, to add to our pandemic woes! The temptation, which should be resisted is to enjoy what we can get when the gettings good. Not a wise choice, I suppose. This afternoon it will be back to work on a project that possibly may help show our way to a better future.

This year's crop from the ornamental orange tree. Have had up to 23 in the past, and this year it took months for these to ripen (they'd set on during the summer.)
But I'm pleased to see them and will use them to
cook a duck recipe for Easter supper. Sadly, it will be for the old guy and me only. We do hope to take a walk in a park with the kids and grandkids though, which is better than last year when we weren't going anywhere in that first lockdown.
