First post of spring

It hasn’t been much of a winter here in the Finger Lakes. Lots of cold days and grey skies, of course, but not much snow.The kids tried to make an igloo out of whatever snow there was, but it melted away before they could finish it.

Despite the mildness of this winter, I was still delighted to see the first signs of spring as the delicate crocus foliage is beginning to emerge from its winter slumber. Spring takes a long time to get here, so every sign is significant.

Dozens and dozens of crocuses are emerging, and even a timid daffodil or two is heading toward the sun.

I know it’s still February, and we are most likely in for many more weeks of winter weather. But spring is on its way.
