I called my father in North Carolina last night. His first questions was, “Do you still have snow up there?” I think he was kidding, but when I told him we did, I’m not sure whether he wanted to laugh or cry. I’ve heard this one dubbed, “The endless Winter.” That’s not entirely accurate, but I’ll tell you that it’s been long. And if most of the snow hadn’t already melted, things would look pretty much the same as they did this time last month.
So what exactly does it look like out there right now? Well, I’m going to show you because I just returned from taking some quick photos from around the property. Not great or all that many photos, but enough to show you there’s not a lot going on. Yes, we still have a few chunks of snow and no, there are no leaves on the trees. The most we’ve got is a few tiny buds on some of the bushes out front and green beginning to sprout from the ground. Other than that, it’s March with less white.
FYI – I do this every so often. I take “snapshot” pictures of certain times of the year that are traditionally transitional, meaning, one year we may have full flower-age and another year we’ll have nothing. It’s fun to gauge where things should be when comparing one year to the next. Enjoy!
