Spring may have officially arrived at 7:44 a.m. EDT last March 20th, but it takes the news a while to reach my neck of the woods. We are early in losing our snow cover this year, though. The total snowfall at my house measured only about 88 inches this winter This is substantially less than last year.
My eyes are hungry for green at this point. I walked through the woods yesterday with my eyes on the ground, looking for green things growing. I saw a lot of woodfern, which is evergreen. The mosses are green now, too, having emerged from under the snow. The haircap moss is particularly bright. The daffodils near the house have started to poke their noses above the dried leaves, but I haven't seen any of my local wildflowers showing yet. At this rate, it won't be long.
