Unfortunately I don’t have a camera, but many signs of spring have occurred in the past week:
-95% of yard is cleared of snow now. Grass is turning green.
-Perennials such as daffodils and daisies are popping out of the ground and beginning to grow
-Ducks/geese returning to thawing waters (most waters are thawed or very close)
-Nighttime temperatures staying close to freezing or even above
-First peepers (frogs) heard last night
-First mosquito of the season (yargh, haha)
-First wasp of the season
-Buds forming on deciduous trees. Trees probably won’t be green until early May.
-Here I am thinking about what to do with my vegetable garden.
I’d say winter is basically over. There’s always the chance of some sub-freezing nights, backend snow showers after a storm, and heavy frosts this time of year, but the full blown cold and snow are done. Bring on spring!
