within the wintry mix

It was a brisk, slushy walk this morning. Only a few tree limbs down. Most early leaf/blooming trees native to this area are resilient to late snows. More rain than snow, thankfully. School ends two weeks from tomorrow.

before the wintry mix

Although these spring bloomers are hearty, it seemed like a good idea to snap some close-ups of them this afternoon while it's still sunny and clear (albeit a bit windy.)
