I don’t really know whether I should count this as the end of Itäväylä or the start of the Old Porvoo Road. Whatever its official title I look out over the fields and see almost nothing except whiteness.
The weather has got stuck in a sliver of time between winter and spring and nothing seems to know what to do. A couple of days ago I saw a big butterfly in the garden. Yesterday I put up an extra birdhouse for the birds that have started building nests. The sun has got hotter but the snow in the garden has stubbornly refused to melt.
On the other hand the snow on the drive has run away and the drive looks as though Spring has arrived.
Hopefully it has, or will do over the next day or so.
