Spring Update

When I got home to Vermont yesterday, I saw that the snow had retreated from full coverage to large patches. It was gray and blustery and cold, not a warm welcome. But this morning I woke to a bright day, brisk and clear. It seemed perfect to hang the laundry outdoors for the first time this year. The snow is still piled high against the back door, so I carried the laundry basket from the front door, around to the back yard where the line is. I spent time outdoors pruning, then saw that by midday the snowdrops had opened. Two spring milestones in one beautiful day.
