Never trust a rodent... that's what I always say.
Well, not always. Just when they open their toothy little faces to say that winter is going to be here for a while longer.
I knew that didn't sound right, and Wyerton Willie can kiss my alstromeria. I saw a flower today in my backyard, and to me that's as good a guarantee as any that winter is on the wane. Bring on the lawn furniture! Grid out the garden boxes!
Okay, so the flower is a snowdrop. A mere technicality. Dust off those golf clubs, limber up the gardening muscles and grease up the bike chain, folks. We're finally coasting downhill into spring.
Maybe I should hold off on the spring cleaning, though... just to be on the safe side.
