Life Under the Snow

Daffodils
I was pleased to find that my hypothesis was correct about daffodils and hyacinths poking up under the snow.

Yesterday I received confirmation. Clumps of daffodils and hyacinths making an appearance in the muddy but snow free areas of the lawn.


Hyacinths
Snow in the Yard
The warmer temperatures have accelerated the arrival of Springtime as the snow pack recedes and the lawn appears. 

Thankfully, it seems we have survived the winter which saw numerous low temperature records fall. Too many low temperature records fell. I am not really interested in receiving my BG&E electric bill for the period. It could be a record as well--in a bad way!

Snow remains in the yard mostly in the areas where it was piled to clear the driveway and walks, and of course the pool remains frozen. 

But the season of darkness and cold is clearly ending. I expect at least one more assault of cold weather--but the warmth is arriving.
