daytime is much warmer now. sunlight hits newly exposed skin and warms you to the core instantly. afternoon temperatures reach up to the mid fifties and at nighttime only drop to the forties. all the plants ross and i keep on the balcony are just starting to bloom. the landscape is also beginning to find new, brighter color and life. it'd be nice to wear t-shirts and sandals again. we'll probably be storing away all our really heavy winter clothes in the next few weeks!
