Goodbye Winter! (at least officially)

Most of our winter was mild this year, but in the last 30 days the tide has changed.  The temperatures are decidedly cold and we have had some major snowstorms. But today, March 20, it is the spring vernal equinox.  There is about equal amounts of daylight and nighttime. is goodbye to winter and hello to spring!  And even though there is snow forecasted for tonight and tomorrow, I will only think about the flowers that will soon be blooming.

Thank you Winter 2012-2013 for your pretty scenes and your forced pause upon our busyness of life.  Thank you for the the precipitation that brought us out of drought status.
