Last weekend was probably the last time we'll be able to play in the snow. And drag out wood on the toboggan.
It's also the best time to spot the baby spruce I planted last spring.
Planted when we suffered a major drought and high heat, I feared not many of the two dozen seedlings I planted would actually make it through the year.
But they did! Most were buried all winter in our tons of snow and only in the last week or so did they appear.
As soon as the snow is gone, and I expect by this weekend for it to be history, they'll be harder to spot. Lucky I marked them all with bright orange tape!
