First Blossoms

With 4″ of snow just a week ago, and 80 degree temperatures yesterday, can Spring be far behind? Just in the past five days, the daffodils have bloomed, trees are showing new leaves, the forsythia are blooming in Apple Valley, and daylight savings time is a reality again.

As spring approaches, oak leaves from last fall hang on for dear life before the new leaves bud out.
