Longer days

'Nature never makes haste; her systems revolve at an even pace.  The buds swell imperceptibly, without hurry or confusion, as though the short spring days were an eternity'  - Thoreau


Melting snow

The seedlings in the front porch greenhouse are cheering on the melting snows, after the mildest winter yet.  We barely saw -20°c except a handful of nights.
