At this time of year, it might be winter one day and spring preview the next. I don't mind these smaller storms we're having, as they're easier to clean up. And everything coated with snow can make a beautiful landscape.
When the snow melts, and I walk outside, I can catch tiny signs of spring. Just a bit of green at the base of catnip or comfrey. And although they're small, when witch hazel blooms like this in February, it's quite a ahow.
And, inside, it's easy to see that spring is approaching. The basement is filling up with seedlings, and even when they're small, each plant's individual characteristics start to develop. Soon, I'll start potting plants in the greenhouse, and spring will be in full swing!
