This is blue chrysocolla. Since I already talked about chyrsocolla yesterday I won't repeat myself. We've had a week of warm weather here (well, above freezing). There is a crack down my driveway and I found a few soft spots where the frost has started leaving the ground. The snow is down to ankle deep and kind of slushy so Indy and I have been taking short walks. A little girl came into the library tonight in shirtsleeves - no coat. She turned in some books and had some books waiting for her on the hold shelf. I told her while I checked out the books she could go over to the hat and mitten tree and pick whatever she wanted. She hesitated only a moment and then made a bee line for a hat w/ earflaps. She happily told I and another patron that she had so wanted just such a hat. She donned the hat, grabbed her books, and left. Even at her young age she knows this warm weather won't last. Tomorow's forecast is for cold temps again.
