I knew my tulips and daffodils
were sprouting,
but this morning,
I found grass and something else coming up through the snow.
I know these are not flowers, but I am linking with

Annie and the Geese

Walking along the path beside the marsh,
Annie startled a pair of geese which had been admiring the view.
Annie is the black blob in the lower left of the next two images.

And a photo of Annie, just to prove she has eyes.

Milkweed Seed and Snow

I noticed this milkweed seed, caught at the edge of a footstep, and loved the way the late afternoon sun lit it.

Purple Loosestrife

A little further along our walk we crossed the rocks between the pond and the marsh, and admired the purple loosestrife, still with the low morning sunlight.

Milkweed at Dawn

After a week with the cold from hell, I was finally able to get back out for a walk. I captured these milkweed plants just after the sun rose over the houses that form the horizon.

I saw three geese with the mallards in the stream,
but they did not wait to be photographed,
and took off.

The sun was shining on and through the snow.
This is not new snow, so you can see the particles that have settled on it.

I took the dogs for a long walk, and found that a couple of the trees beside the river
had tiny pussywillows, just peeking out!

Venus Comb Shell

I took the Venus comb shell out in the new snow, to see the contrast.

Fortunately, the foot of snow we received this past week does not affect the flowers in the house.
The forsythia is about done - I will have to gather more branches...
I doubt the lilac will actually blossom, but I love watching the buds develop.
And the Valentine's Day cactus is trying to be an Easter cactus, too!

Snowstorm Part 3

Only another 3 cm of snow yesterday.
That makes nearly a foot, and it is still coming down.
The temperature is still hovering around freezing, so the snow is wet and heavy.
Wednesday's snow fell off the fence yesterday, but not off the top of the gate, so you can see the accumulation.
