Spring is...springing!

I completely missed wishing everyone a Happy Pi Day (March 14th...haha), as well as a Happy Vernal Equinox, but the crocuses didn't. They magically popped up yesterday to commemorate the Equinox, smart flowers.

The snowdrops have been blooming for a couple of weeks now, deterred not by the ice and snow. Determined little buggers. And cute too, although the cold and blooming for so long had taken their toll and these are no longer as nice looking as they were in their prime (join the club).

Things are greening up in general, though. Today is warm and very windy...March comes in like a lion, after all (so it's a tad late coming this year). This is looking down from the house toward the shed, greenhouse, and garden.
