It is time for my annual May 1st update on spring.
This year spring is very late compared to my previous updates since 2009.
It is even later than it was last year.
Not a hint of green in the woods, the daffodils are not blooming, but a few of the earliest ones are sporting large, yellow buds.
Even though there are no green leaves yet, the pussy willows are in bloom.
So are the crocuses, and have been for a couple of weeks. However, they got quite beaten down by the hail a couple of days ago.
The winter has been long and cold, and the ground has been frozen until recently.
The snow keeps falling still.
