A few days back I wrote in
“Being ‘SO OVER’ winter and past ready for Spring I decided to go looking for SIGNS FROM THE MOTHER of the end of the COLD SEASON and will post what my search has uncovered so far”. Well here’s what little I came up with; here in the Northeast at least it seems to be playing a very tough game of hide and seek – and I’m losing.
OK, this snow covered hillside may not look like Spring to those who live outside the Northeast but that retaining wall peeping out through the snow has not been visible since before Christmas.
and here is some actual GREEN GRASS. It has to be new growth because I don’t think it could have survived the winter.
These are sunflower seed heads – yes they’re last year’s but they’re still a promise of what’s soon to come – I HOPE.
and last but not least branches of the Dogwood if you look close you might actually see a few buds – sorry I couldn’t get any closer with my camera – too much snow still.
Also about this same time I promised to send a couple pics of the car so I’ll put them in here too.
Well I guess you’ve gathered by now the only place Spring has arrived here in reality is in my mind and my outlook on things. It’s a start though.
BTW; It’s below freezing here today.
