Our daylight hours are now longer than the nights, and the sun is shining brightly (sometimes). The birdies are returning and Äiti went out to welcome back the laulujuotsen, our national bird. Now these we would not try to hunt; they are big and noisy.
As you can see, there's still lots of snow and ice, including on the Catio. But when the sun shines brightly, we forget the fact it is still very chilly.
