Finally something is poking up through the frozen ground. It's skunk cabbage. For me skunk cabbage does not evoke spring tea parties and bunnies. But, that's all we have here...so far.
My daughters think it's spring though. When the temperature reached a sunny 56 degrees they shed their coats and had a jolly time.
I walked around collecting acorn caps clutching a delicious (very dark) hot chocolate in my gloved hand. Spring? No, I don't think so.
