Spring Prelude

We are well into March, but Spring is slower to come this year.  After another brief snowfall last week, I do see more bulbs emerging.  Crocus and snowdrops are popping up everywhere.  The daffodils are slowly coming out.  I'm really looking forward to Spring.  We have had enough snow!!
