Sunday 12 February 2012: Springtime in Winter
Once again, I'm seeing two seasons at the same time. Let's hope that all the early flowers of Spring, here tricked into sprouting too soon, will survive and bloom for us this year.
As Shakespeare's Juliet said,
"Yond light is not daylight, I know it, I:
It is some meteor that the sun exhales
To be to thee this night a torch-bearer
And light thee on the way to Mantua:
Therefore stay yet, thou need'st not to be gone."
