It snowed (heavily) for a few hours this morning, just to remind us that yes, this is New England, and just because yesterday was the first day of spring, that doesn't mean it has to actually feel that way. And yet, despite the crazy weather, the plants are forging ahead with their spring plans. This morning, I was excited to see the very beginnings of what will soon be leaves (and then flowers) emerging from the buds on the lilac bushes in our front yard.
Hooray for green things. :D
