the warmer side of January

Today the weather stayed warm. I saw a sulphur butterfly flit just above the ground.
Bluebirds flew from post to post. The warmth felt like a late Spring day.
Yet the ground is not in bloom but at rest. Cold weather awaits ahead as well as behind. A given day here may be very warm or chillingly cold. Things do change. Soon the saucer magnolia's February bloom will be underway. Then the the pear trees bloom. Then the Spring flowers come.

But for now it's enough to enjoy a warm day.
