There's still a pond of ice in the backyard. The weather is wet. The ground is soggy. My brain is still winter groggy.
But look what popped up amid the dead pine needles by the front door! Our very first crocus buds!
The good news is that I see many of our other bulbs have leaves beginning to form.

Jeanne and I even went out on the town and found the first geocache of the year today. It was one we were unable to locate last year. Hooray for the change of seasons!
