About 3 weeks ago, when I was in Indiana, I blogged a photo of the daffodils that were already blooming down there. I am happy to report that the daffodils, in the small flower garden next to our sidewalk, got tired of waiting under the snow and decided to show themselves.
We have had a week of daytime melting temperatures (+12C, 54F). A thick blanket of snow still covers our whole yard, but there are pockets of melted areas around the edges of the house and sidewalk. I noticed yesterday that the ice on my pond has started to take on a light greenish hue, all of these things give me hope that things are finally moving in the right direction.
