in newfoundland. spring is slow. and then it is summer. yesterday we woke to snow. st. john's is a little ahead of the west coast with it's blooming tulips and daffodils and hyacinths. we have a week of warm rain predicted so next sunday i predict we will also have leaves and blooms. which will be good because my sister is coming for a visit from ontario (to celebrate our shared birthdays). and i want it to be pretty.
