Spring Is Moving Ahead

After a steady rain on Saturday, the sun has returned and I've looked 
around outdoors a little more.  The Iris reticulata are in bloom, joining 
the Galanthus that started blooming a week or two ago.  Here and there, 
crocuses are starting to open, and the first Narcissus has an open flower 
today!  The first few Trillium nivale are in bloom, a good three weeks 
later than usual.

The temperature is about 55 F under sunny skies.
