cold and windy today, but yesterday smelled like spring

Yesterday, as I drove to school to pick up DD, the air smelled like spring. It’s on its way! We went out to do some yard work today, but, even though the thermometer said 50, the 16 mph wind said 40. Too chilly for me.

We put down one load of mulch and picked up quite a few bundled Christmas tree lights that were still sitting under the red bud trees. DH is cutting up the apple tree that fell over last summer. I took a few pictures and then came in to warm up. I’ll wait for a sunnier and warmer day to be outside.

The first crocus of the year popped up today.

The daffodils are working their way skyward, as well.

There are a few buds showing. A promising sign of spring!

The garden sorrel is poking its way through the winter debris.

Can’t stop spring when the time is right. ~~Rhonda 🙂

    Your pictures are a breath of fresh air! It was 19 most of the day and the snowflakes were flying! We also have a wind and it feels colder than it is. I think we are less than a foot from the all time record of snowfall in a winter! So Crocus and daffodils and sorrel look mighty good to me! We did get the awful smell of a skunk hit on the road yesterday … so if they are waking up it must be on it’s way here too!!
