Or Maybe Not Spring

Yesterday morning I got up to tulips just ready to bloom. This morning, I get up to THIS WHITE MESS!

The plum tree was just about ready to burst into bloom when it got coated with white crap last night. Notice the green of the leaves beneath the mounds of snow.
Luckily by noon it was all thawed off and the tulips joyously burst into bloom, welcoming the sunshine however brief it may be.
This afternoon the garden was dry enough I was able to plant some snow peas, radishes, lettuce and beets.
Then I sat and soaked up the sunshine like an old Hereford cow.

Snow drifts are thawed off. The daffs are blooming, the tulips are budding, the birds are eating the dog food. Mud puddles are drying up. Yes, spring is here!
