The hyacinths are not doing quite what I was expecting. Maybe they are too cold. But I think the bedroom mimics early spring conditions well - it is a steady 50'F/10'C. At least, that is what the little thermometer on an interior wall says.
They do smell good, though.
The polar bear vortex is back, and soon I head into the a crisp 19'F/-7'C in what The Times this morning called "pointless sunshine." I am beginning to worry about spring walks. Spring in June?
