We got 8" of snow last week, and now have temps in the 60s this week. It really feels like we're transitioning to spring. The sun is startlingly warm while the breeze still picks up the chill of the snow lingering in the shade.
The boundary between two seasons.
Even the bench is warming up.
Ray will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing that this is dianthus freynii
emerging gorgeously from under the snow in the trough in his front yard.
I know, I know, there's still more cold, sleet and probably snow to come, but I can enjoy the sun today knowing spring is only a couple weeks away.
