In an earlier post I mentioned a lovely, early March walk to the Ditch. It was 60 degrees, sunny and perfect. The water still looked pretty cold. There's still a lot of ice, but it's breaking up and the weather was certainly helping.
Some of the ducks were on the ice; others were brave enough to be in what still had to be frigid water. They are heartier than I!
Most of the paths were clear, but someone had kindly chipped a path through the icier parts.
The Canada geese were sunning themselves on the bank. There are plenty of them. In another couple of months we'll see lots of goslings.
I love that someone has hung out a collection of bird feeders.
And yes, there's corn for the corn fans!
There were more than a few walkers and several families with children or dogs.
It couldn't have been a lovelier day. So, you'd think spring was here, right? Think again!
But you have to admit, it's pretty.
The trees were just kissed by the snow -- nothing too major, just a dusting.
But definitely a reminder -- spring is not yet here in my town.
I can wait. Really, do I have a choice?
(We had snow Sunday; 50s today (Tuesday). Tiny sprouts of daffs are peeking out of the mulch and leaves. It's coming!)
