Earth Week Begins in Cold


"Behold! It is the spring-tide of the year.
Over and past is winter's gloomy reign."
These words are sung as part of our Seder, but this year, they seem, somehow... inaccurate. We awoke this morning to 2-3 inches of wet snow which even now isn't completely melted. It isn't uncommon for a spring snow to cover our daffodils... just the last one I recorded happened on April 5 -- a lot earlier in the season. I just hope this is the last!














But things are still moving forward... the yellow blur in the middle of this photo is a goldfinch. Key word: Yellow! That's summer plumage.

  1. Yesterday was much nicer than today even with the snow. Yesterday felt like an adventure where as today was more like torture. However, we still went outside and removed buckthorn.
