A Hint of Spring

The daily highs have been well above freezing, and the long awaited thaw as begun.  It was a beautiful afternoon, one for walking about and seeing what is waking after the winter slumber.

We still have quite a bit of snow about - mostly in piles we created shoveling the deck and the driveway and paths.

It will be some time before they all melt!

Luckily, the snow has left most of the yard.  The raised beds are clear, though they need some work!

I had a feeling that the daffodils would start to emerge.  Yes!  They are pushing through the leaf litter.  Though the calendar said Spring started a few days ago, real Spring is nearly here.

The creek is flowing clear.  There is still ice on the shaded northern back.  I good rain will soon melt it away.

Can't wait for Spring!
