Yesterday upstate NY had a one day taste of spring. It got up to 64.7 degrees at our house - at our airport we missed the record high by one degree.
When I first moved her in the 1980's it would have been unusual to have no snow on the ground. Now, it isn't that unusual.
We all basked in the sunshine.
I had a doctors appointment in the afternoon and had enough time for a walk beforehand - and to my delight I saw a patch of dandelions in bloom. Here is one.
Here is a leaf -blurred because I was in a rush - but an actual leaf! And actual green grass! (Actually my lawn is still green..and sorry, I don't miss the snow at all.)
It was nice while it lasted.
And with this post - well, we are getting close to winter on the calendar, and I need to change the name of my Wednesday feature. I'm thinking of Winter Whimseys so that I can blog about anything winter-related, not just nature. Of course, if we keep getting spells of mild weather....could we possibly have another mild winter like last year?
Dare I hope?
