Last week: Here
That same area, today: It's the sort of thing that helps make evolution so darned cool, because under that snow, the crocuses are just hanging out, not too bothered at all, waiting to enjoy some more moisture from the melt. Yeah, they'd be happy for some sunshine. But despite the delicate looks, those things are tough, way tougher than I am.
The local seedeating birds have been busy at and about the feeder all day. Sometimes, the wind will just blow them the heck around, but they seem to handle things with such grace. It's got to be tough if you're a bird around here, though.
And just because I can, here's a graphic and gratuitous picture of a maple tree. You're just a little bit shocked, aren't you?
I hope Proserpina didn't break her ankle!
