What a lovely spring we're having in Boston.
On Saturday, after Mrs Philocrites completed the fourth and final day of her Episcopal General Ordination Exams, we decided there's simply nothing better than springtime in Cambridge in January. Walking toward Harvard Square, we passed trees in bloom near the high school. What's more, bees were buzzing everywhere — but I couldn't capture an unblurry picture of them.
With the temperature reaching almost 70 degrees, we carried our lightest jackets over our arms. The street performers had emerged from hibernation in the Square; people were playing chess and drinking iced tea (!) outdoors at Au Bon Pain; undergrads were playing football and throwing frisbees along the banks of the Charles River as joggers in sports bras ran by. One guy was playing his guitar on Weeks Bridge like it was May, which is exactly what if felt like.
Hmm: Warmest December in Boston's history. Anyone else struck by unusual weather in their neck of the woods?
