Since I still have no blooms in my yard I thought for the 'end of the month' meme I would share some photos I took in the middle of the month, to demonstrate how much can change in two weeks.
The yellow branches of this unknown tree really stand out when they are surrounded by white.
Canada Geese are some of the first birds to return up north and don't seem bothered by some snow.
Two weeks later they have been replaced by puddles and bicyclists.
No more crossing the river; clear channels of open water were running down each back.
While further downstream an ice jam had formed. Really quite spectacular to see close up.
A bit of snow can brighten up any spot.
While the time between clean fresh snow cover and lush green new growth can look rather drab.
At least we are heading int he right direction and hopefully soon I will be able to share actual blooms from my gardens!
