Winter, Spring, Winter
The daffodils and forsythia are blooming and I spotted a crocus nearly open yesterday. These plants seem able to take the weather see-saw although a hard freeze would probably ruin the blooms.
Little teasers of spring right now then back to winter.
Another sign of the season is that there are a lot of skunks out and many are being hit on the highways. Since we're in the country, many are hit on the road on which we live. That makes for such a delightful perfume for several days!
But, the skunks and the early flowers signal that spring really isn't that far away. Here's hoping it's early this year!
