Today was sunny and mild and you might almost think spring is here. I took a few close-ups around the yard that express the changing seasons.
It is really too early to declare spring. It’s not terribly common, but we might well get some freezing and snow again. And assuredly there will be dark, chilly dreary days before spring actually settles in. None-the-less the sun and warmth are a welcome break…and they gave me a chance to get my roses pruned.
Grandma was in a nursing home for rehab the whole month, my son visited from China over Chinese New Year, my youngest niece was born, a tree fell snapping power lines and pulling out a power pole over at Dad’s (he was out of town so I had to deal)…otherwise it was a wet, dreary month. Photographically moss caught my eye, the way it catches the low angle of sunlight in winters here makes it seem to glow from within, even on days with very little sunlight.
