It happens every year at this time. We get a few warm, spring-like days, and then winter returns. We have damp, cold, windy weather with sleet or a dusting of snow, either of which turns to black ice.

Feb. 25


Feb. 27. It might have been mating season, but these two cardinals didn’t appear interested in each other.

March 2. Sign of winter.

March 2. Aha! I found two white crocuses…

March 2 … and a clump of purple crocuses.

March 13. I couldn’t stand waiting any more, so I bought some daffodils to bloom in my home. (Note the hand-loomed Bolivian sash holding the clump of flowers up.)

March 13. I found a purple hyacinth about to bloom…

March 13 … and a daffodil about to bloom.

March 20. One week later, the purple hyacinth was in full bloom…

March 20 …and so was the daffodil…

March 20 … and a pink hyacinth, too.

March 20 …and there’s more to come.
