Is Spring around the Corner?

I don't know, I really don't. I saw a friend change her facebook cover image to "Spring - download failed. Spring not available in your Country." I think she has a point. Especially with the forecast for the weather later today and this coming weekend. Urgh. (Rain, Hail, Ice Storms they are calling for. Late afternoon traffic mayhem. Expect power failures.)

Ah - see - now this is a fresh, poking out of the ground, "is it spring yet?" colour! A real Chartreuse Poison Green colour that screams "Spring!"
