We are in the mid-upper 60s, with blooms, blossoms, and allergies everywhere.
We did it!
We made it through winter!
Here's a video I took of the spring caterpillars in Greece. The caterpillars make giant, webby, cotton-ball nests in the pine trees, and hatch when it starts getting consistently warm. I don't know what their deal is, but they like to walk in long, single-file lines. From a distance, they look like sticks or ropes, and I am constantly coming within milimeters of crushing them. The bad news about stepping on these caterpillars is that they cause allergic reactions in a lot of people, so their dead juice can get tracked all over your house, and cause you to develop a rash, if you're not careful with your shoes.
I could do without the caterpillars, but I still love this time of year in Greece.
