We will still get subfreezing temperatures and snow for another month or so, but winter's grip is loosening. The local flora think so too. Here are a few pictures I snapped today.
|Daffodils in bud, outside Lincoln Elementary School.|
|Crocus in bloom, also at Lincoln Elementary.|
|Red maple flower buds. Picture taken near sunset.|
|Trident maple buds opening; ready to repot!|
Conditions in the mudroom are milder than outside, and for several of those trees, dormancy is breaking rapidly. The trident maples and Japanese black pine are at the perfect stage for repotting, so I'll be getting to that within the next few days. ☺
|This pine's candles are elongating quickly.|
