I took this photo last week, before the snow. Today, one week later, all our snow is gone! Part of me is sad, but then, the birds are happy and chirping; they are announcing: spring! Yesterday I walked past a different neighbor whose snowdrops had already formed blooms.
The sky really was this white on this day in mid-January. Today, in early February, we are having a thaw, and I looked outside for signs of crocuses. Maybe my neighbor’s snowdrops will come up soon? The ground is still too hard to plant peas, but I should order some new ones and some inoculant to plant with the pea seeds.
This was cropped from a 2006 photo, taken from my old digital Kodak Canon Powershot. I see the photo is not as crisp as those taken with my current Canon Powershot. Could be my skill has improved. It is a threadleaf coreopsis.
