Not cold by your standards, some frosty mornings, so I suppose in the middle of the night it goes just below freezing, then in the middle of the day it can be 64 deg F (20 deg C), so the contrasts are the most difficult to cope with. 

Snow is very, very rare where we live although they do get some on the mountains, and very little rain during the Winter, so at least it is not cold and wet, lol

I agree too Jason - it has been lovely here. We went to Bewdley on Sunday and the crocuses where out in profusion like a blanket on the grass (to answer your question on your kind comment Cathy yes they are out and I took that photo on Sunday). I feel new hope this spring!

I'm so excited about Spring coming!  No more snow, please!  I was in San Diego, California last week, and it was a bit sunnier and warmer than here in Virginia.  It had rained there a lot the previous week, and the desert had come alive, green everywhere and wild flowers bursting with color.  The first time I saw San Diego 2 years ago, it was brown desert.  Amazing what a bit of rain can do.  Sue, I may have flown over your house.  I saw a lot of snow-capped mountains during the flight too.  When I returned home on Saturday, I noticed more birds singing and my trees were budding, which is always a good sign!
