I was very happy to see the crocus bloom last week. But the warm weather that helped the crocus bloom quickly turned cold. We had about an inch of snow, most of which melted. It is still cold, and we expect to get about three more inches of snow tonight.
The crocus still have their petals, but they are not really blooming anymore.
There is still a little bit of snow on the ground, even in places where it has mostly melted. And of course, there is more to come.
This moss on an elm tree stump is anticipating spring. The small reddish “shoots” will soon develop into spore capsules, making identification a little easier.
This icicle hangs down from the stem of a multi-floral rose.
We had a taste of spring, and the weather forecasters predict that the warm weather (at least warmer than now) will be back by the end of this week. Until then, we will hunker down by the wood stove.
