Glad your snow has gone at last, as has ours. I'd forgotten what the grass looked like! And the road where I live hasn't been snow and ice free for more than three weeks but it is today. For how long though... :-/
Those poor hobbits arrived on time, but they were literally freezing, so I placed them before the fire and offered them a hot tea with honey. Half an hour later they were happy and ready to celebrate with me!!
