After a (fairly) mild winter we got blasted with a good snow yesterday! The kind with thick flakes falling hard and fast. Last year I don’t think we got much more than some flurries. I could see our Dogwood trees starting to bud, and our daffodils peeking out of the ground, so I’d almost given up hope . I’m crossing all my fingers and toes in the hopes that we’ve had enough cold to drive away a good portion of the bugs and (shudder) spiders for this summer!
