Are We Done Yet?

It snowed all last night, and it's supposed to snow all day tomorrow, too. I haven't had to shovel the walk, yet, since the snow has been melting nearly as fast as it touched the ground.  But wow, it sure stuck to the trees!  A Winter Wonderland, one week from the First Day of Spring!

Lest we despair that spring will ever get here, the Skunk Cabbage tells us that there's no turning back now.  The spathes have opened, the spadices tucked inside are studded with pollen, and the plant is  bursting with so much energy it melts the snow around it.  Ta da!  Let me present, the Very First Flower of Spring!

Ah, spring -- it's on its way in spite of the beautiful snow that's been falling all day.
