Spring. . . . or Not?

It is, really, the first day of spring, the vernal equinox. Can you tell? I went for a walk yesterday and looked for signs of the new season. I did find a few patches of somewhat thawed dirt on the road. The sun was bright, strong and warmish. It was a gorgeous walk. And today we have a winter storm warning.IMG_1762IMG_1770
But alas, I did not see any pussy willows, gophers, or even mud. I know it can’t be far away. The calender says so.

But I guess we will have to keep watching. Winter is still here for a bit yet.

  1. Anyone chatted with that groundhog yet?
    We are back to almost normal temps (after a couple of 90’s…which they also had during March 1907). It will be hot soon enough – Enjoy that bright blue sky – and the chance to wander around outside without getting dripping with sweat in less than a block. (All that bright white contrasting with the bright blue – cool for sure!)

  2. I can’t wait for the weather to break. My projects are on hold, and my Bonsai want out of the greenhouse!
