It doesn't take long for big changes to occur at this time of year.
I wasn't planning to blog the snow pile again, but I have had a special request for an update. Remember how large it looked just nine days ago?
Here it is today.
Although I helped Mother Nature along as best I could by continuing to throw some of it back onto the driveway to speed up the melting process, it was a mild week that caused most of the shrinkage. Most of the week was sunny and warmish; it went up to about 60°F one day. Then yesterday's rain washed more away. I wonder how long it will take to melt the rest of the pile? Supposedly, it is going to be yet another fab week.
Also, it was just one week ago that I removed the snow from atop these crocuses.
Here's what they look like today. It's a cool, windy day so they're choosing not to open, but they're present and colourful. I'll try to get some better pictures this week. Although they always look the same I take new crocus pictures every year; I can't seem to help myself.
