This Time of Year

I took a walk this morning. The thermometer said 28F. The sun felt warm. These Lenten roses peeking out from under dry leaves say we are balanced between the seasons. 
There's ice on the creek, but it's supposed to be above 50 degrees this afternoon. The ice will disappear as the day unfolds. Click to enlarge.
Cherry blossoms are ready to pop.
I found one precocious forsythia blossom on a bush of otherwise tightly closed buds.
This is really coming along. I think it's a Cornelian cherry dogwood.
It's still cold out there, but things are happening. Everything's on course for spring.
