On the 18th floor of my building, the garden I've tended for 10 years is dressed in snow. A bird perches atop the center of the iron fence.  Plenty of fruits and seeds are begging to be eaten: rose hips, Aronia and Virginia creeper berries, grasses and annuals seeds still clinging.
City kids make forts just as well as country kids; the materials may differ slightly.
Any signs of spring where you live?

The groundhog warned of 6 more weeks of winter and up here in the Boston area that is just what we have!

How neat to see this in winter. We have snow too. Need the moisture so not complaining about having to shovel but man is it cold!

I love that fort! It's a perfect urban version.
