This a photo from 1931 of my sister and myself, taken by our mother with her Brownie box camera. I have no actual memory of this day. Hat, scarves and mittens were all handmade, I'm sure. I think this was when we lived in Hamden, Massachusetts. I am including this as a farewell to winter. We had one last(?) snowfall last week which was actually quite deep. I call it a 60 dollar storm since that is what our snowplow man charged to clear the driveway. At any rate within 48 hours, it had all melted. Everyone is weary of the cold and, I'm sure, willing to forgo any more snow til next winter. As for me, I'm going to see if I can see any crocus poking through.
