February ended cold, and March began cold. 10 degrees at 7 am on March 2. The fountain juniper is almost completely covered.
More snow yesterday, but warmer temperatures – over freezing.
Temperatures are staying at freezing or below – but the fountain juniper begins to reveal itself. The only place to find color is at the Smith College Spring Bulb show.
More sun, but still freezing temperatures. And yet melting – or subliming – continues. “Sublime verb – to move from a solid (ice or snow) to vapor.”
I wouldn’t have taken a photo today but the early morning fog is so beautiful. Last night there was rain, then snow. By noon the sun was shining and the temperature had risen to 50 degrees! Not for long.
And so March finally ends. The snow is still deep and frozen over most of the landscape. Last year there were patches of bare ground. What will April bring?
