It's the first day of spring! We had snow yesterday, but really the picture above is typical of March in this zone, early flowers and snow. I have grape hyacinths, pictured above, snowdrops, the first crocuses, and a viola blooming.

It makes me laugh when people get all worked up about the groundhog on February 2, whether he(she?) sees his(her) shadow or not, spring comes in six weeks. As long as you remember spring in the Hudson Valley can mean snow along with warmer sun, longer days, and budding trees, it all makes sense.
