Spring freeze

on Sunday, February 20, 2011
My longing for spring this morning was met with mixed feelings. I woke up to it being 30 degrees outside (that's cold even for winter time here in the Seattle area), but it was blue skies and sunny and beautiful. I love to see how frost creates a whole new beautiful world of sparkle.

The first evidence of spring is the blooming of the Indian Plum. I noticed it pop up 2 weeks ago from today, but only now have I seen it begin to flower. Hooray!
