Behind the house on the south side the snow has all but disappeared.
Making it an ideal spot for crows to dig for their next meal
As lovely as it looks though it's far from ideal. Muck boots were absolutely necessary for today's walk as it's now officially mud season, as seen in our driveway.
Pussycats that dislike getting their toes wet were having difficulty with the conditions.
But managed to find a way to enjoy the fresh air without getting too dirty.
I found plenty of buds on trees and shrubs like this lilac
But nothing is quite ready to burst open just yet.
There aren't any spring bulbs to sigh over
we'll have to wait for blooms for awhile but I did spy a hint of growth
Up against the warmth of the foundation the bleeding hearts are beginning to push through the earth. Spring really is coming.
