What a difference a week makes!
The blue sky and the Daphne odora 'Zuiko Nishiki' ready, any day, to explode into bloom is today. It was sunny and 48F. The dusting of snow and the bleakly monochromatic (almost) landscape including the Fern Valley Meadow and the Capitol Columns. That was last week. I'm feeling good about the prospects for an early spring. Phil did see not see his shadow and we're sort of in the neighborhood of western Pennsylvania. Sort of. Not really. It's supposed to warm up considerably beginning this weekend and we're right at normal now. This is going to be another one of those year, like last year, where February is March. Better than Snowmageddon.
