Winter Aconite on Friday

The moment the snow melts, we are greeted by our winter aconite, already blooming. It was there yesterday as the wind quickly evaporated the snow...snow that had been between 1 and 2 feet deep only a week ago. 
More is expected tonight but it won't hurt the winter aconite which will still be blooming whenever we see it next. It is a most reliable harbinger of all the good things to come.

  1. Sweet, on this blustery winter morning it is good to have a reminder that the spring season is on the way.
