Proper Behaviour

In just one day the snow is all gone. I like it like that.

One roadside vegetable garden gets back to the business of warming the soil. It is hard to believe after a winter long snow pack that 3 inches of snow just vanished.

The new strawberries got a nice deep drink from the rain and the snow.

The look just fine. Between the layer of snow and a warm ground they are not likely to have felt the low around 25 that occurred in the night.

The crocus opened just a bit in the late afternoon sun once all the snow was gone.

The countdown to the Bulbapaloozathon resumes.

Of course there will be more snow. It is a given, but the tide has turned.

Color other than grey, brown and white has returned to the mountain.

Is there no mud?

Nice close-up on the crocus.

All looks fine. A little white drink for the lovelies. All is coming together as Mother Nature intended.
Be careful.

I do recall saying snow was acceptable upon my return from Maui as long as it melted quickly. Yes, hooray for spring.

Chuck as long as the ground is not frozen, the soil is so well drained there is next to no mud.

It is looking good Lola.

What a gorgeous day you had! The picture of the crocus is beautiful. Hope the warmth stays around.
