A friend brought by this lovely bouquet of tulips as a get well wish. Today is the first day of spring and sights like this are ever so welcome!!
However, this is what spring looks like here this evening:
Not quite what I expected but then again March is like winter's last hurrah as a tradition here. We usually get at least one big dump of snow during this month. This was an accumulation of a couple inches accumulated during the day today. By mid week next it will be all gone again. There are no signs of vegetative growth here. No tulips, crocus nor daffodil in the vicinity. My mom told me her tulips are coming up where she lives in Southern Alberta. Sigh....
Snow or not, I'm just glad it is now officially spring!!!
