We are melted back down the the old snow piles we had a week ago before we got 8″ of new snow. That new snow is nearly gone.
Spring bulbs are popping out of the ground and buds on many trees are swelling. Lots of Robins back on the day it snow, and it has been a pretty good year for sugaring so far.
There is still plenty of snow in the shady spots, and, of course, we’ve more than once had a big snow in late March or mid-April. But today and tomorrow it will be rain not enough to keep me inside but also not a day to sit out and enjoy spring.
A time of transition, as is the case with so much these days, and I have all the hope in the world spring will arrive.
