The week began with almost a foot of snow on the ground, not ideal weather for the kids to enjoy spring break. The sun came out Monday afternoon and by Tuesday evening most of the snow was gone. Only a few patches remained in shaded spots. We had more moisture Thursday, this time in the form of rain. Then the sun came out Friday and its warmth, combined with the wet round, began to bring the earth to life. Now pink hyacinths have joined the cheery daffodils blooming beside the cellar and tender stalks of peonies are pushing through the ground. Bright yellow forsythia blooms match the daffodils and the japonica at the corner of the front yard has begun to blossom.
