what lies beneath

It’s still winter here in New England, though some days you wouldn’t know it. Those of you who live in this area know the motto “wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.” In a span of a day the temperature can drop 40 or 50 degrees. It can snow or rain when the sun is out. And it can go from windless and clear to dark skies and gale force winds in a matter of an hour.

Even though there are still 3 or so weeks before spring officially arrives, there are signs of spring everywhere. Early bulbs are popping, perennials are poking their shoots through the earth, and the buds on the trees are getting ready to open.

Then yesterday, along comes a snow storm, and those hopeful hints of spring were covered up again. But, as my grandfather used to say, that snow is just nature’s fertilizer, giving everything a little boost before spring’s real debut.

Here are a few glimpses of what lies beneath the snow…

This morning the sun is peeking through the clouds, and with luck, in another day or so the snow will have melted away.

Tomorrow is the first day of March, and we take the next few tentative steps towards spring.

See you then!
