The Sun Came Back this Afternoon.......

After what seems like weeks of rain (more than 5 inches so far this year), the sun finally came out this afternoon.

Walking on the lawn is a little like tip-toeing across the surface of a sponge, but the coral bark maple "Sango Kaku" and the "Winter King" Hawthornes look unbelievable in the bright light! The daffodils and hyacinths have just started showing a little bit of their leaves above the surface of the ground, the witch hazels are about to burst into color, and the forsythia buds are starting to swell, as well. I know we've barely begun winter, but it looks like I'm not the only one waiting for spring to arrive soon!
