Spring is here

Spring finally arrived here this week: daily temperature readings were in the 50-60 degree F range, nighttime lows remained above freezing, and at the end of the week there was slow rain. On Monday there were winter jasmine, witch hazels, snowdrops and the first tommies; by Wednesday the winter aconites appeared overnight. A few star magnolia buds are just showing color. Mornings are now vibrant with bird song. Yesterday evening local wetlands were booming with the calling of peepers and wood frogs. That for me is the real sign of spring.
