The Cool House: Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung

I gathered in all the snow sticks (it's been a really unsnowy winter this year on Long Island) and noticed that things are starting to come to life again in the yard.

Bluebells starting to bloom under the maple tree.

Day lilies are pushing through all over the front yard. And so, you will see if you look at the top of the photo, are the weeds. The Forsythia has a distinct yellow tinge and there are buds on all the branches. A couple more weeks and we'll be seeing a lot more green and a lot less brown out there.
Which leads me to a question: If spring has sprung why is it so damn cold?
