Looking for spring

I decided yesterday, when the air temp had elevated to 56 degrees and the sun was shining, I’d grab my jacket and head on outside to see if I could find spring.

I am happy to report that I did find some signs of spring. I also found some work that was not taken care of in the fall. Among the dead vines was one lonely gourd waiting to be rescued from the swampy soil.

After grabbing him and taking him to the workshop to dry with the others, I was back out to find some green – at least something to let me know spring was near. With the snow almost gone it wasn’t too hard.

Surprise find under the snow!

I’m excited. I did find some spring! It won’t be long now.
