Oh man, I thought that our snow would NEVER leave! Just 4 days ago, on 3/23, I stopped by the Orra Phelps Nature Preserve in Wilton, N.Y., hoping to see if any native wildflowers might be starting to bloom in the woods. Hah! Not very likely, since snow still lay deep throughout the preserve, as this photo taken that day reveals.
No doubt about it now: the spring wildflower season is definitely upon us!
