Balmy


One day snow, the next day the sun is shining. Children play in the park and couples stroll in the sunshine. Trees suddenly show soft clouds of new leaves. A young woman in a summer dress bicycles past me. Winter never existed.

People keep using the word "balmy".

We use the word "balmy" because we are all "balmy" after a long winter. Such an interesting word!
Great photo of how we have shed our winter outer clothing......

Balmy greetings from balmy Eagan to balmy Three Rivers!

We're all enjoying the balmy weather, the greening grass, the budding trees...

Balmy regards
