Late Winter

Late winter, or perhaps early spring!  One can never be sure what Mother Nature has in store for us, of course.  But, whichever, we’ve had a warmer few days and I managed to get outside to see what is uncovered or leftover from winter.

Now that it is mid-March, we can hope that whatever storm might come, it won’t linger long and we’ll soon see some green tips of spring showing through.  I’m getting impatient!

  2. Yes, I love the pics of the ice melting also. It gives me hope for Springs somehow. 🙂

    • Yes, Linda, spring is closer now! It’s been warming up for a couple days, and I was even out taking photographs with out a jacket yesterday! Nice, but probably wont’ last — it is March, after all! Thanks for stopping by.
