My friend sent me some links to a wonderful weather site, which has beautiful shots of nature. Here is a link to get you into the mood of winter..er, spring.
Last Saturday, in Brooklyn (one of the five boroughs of New York City), it was 63 degrees. The grass was green. Tree branches were glowing with flowing sap. People worked in their small yards. Trees may grow in Brooklyn, but today's style is topiary.
Surviving annuals from last year included flowering cabbage and kale. Soon they will be dug up.
And then I came back home to upstate New York, near Binghamton. Yesterday it was 13 degrees and a dusting of snow covered the ground. This morning, it was 13 degrees. Tomorrow morning, our forecast is for a low of 18 with snow.
Will we ever see green again?
