then the sun came out

I realize a sunny day may not seem like news, but this gardener's heart is counting the minutes of increasing daylight and enjoing every minute of sunshine she can get! Maybe because I'm teaching a gardening class right now, I'm chomping at the bit to start working outside again.

So even though it's cold and even though digging into the soil is months away (well maybe 6 weeks for pansies), I found the sunshine and the melting snow quite promising.

Central Park looks especially fetching in a mantle of white, don't you think? Enjoy it while you can! The days are getting steadily longer, and Spring cannot be far away!

Outside the Buckley School on E 74th Street (totally unrelated to gardening!) was the best snowman I've seen in the city. In light of the aforementioned sun and melting, I thought I'd better snap a shot while I could.

Even here in far Western, PA, where I'll be for another 2 days, there is sun and thaw, and yeah, it does cheer a gardener's heart.

LOVE that muscled snowman!

Though I know you're getting new snow today (3/25), those sunny photos are stunning. Wah ... we've had not a glimmer in Cincy. No signs of spring except longer gray days, but I have faith that under the snow will be the tips of early daffs and snowdrops.

Such a snowman! Oy!
