Today is sunny. Midday temperatures are forecast to be in the fifties.
In forty-eight hours, we expect nighttime temperatures in the single digits.
In the midst of this seesawing bloom a harbingers of spring.
Yesterday morning snowdrops were emerging from a light snowfall.
Cold and snow will freeze them solid, will knock them down.
But they always seem to bounce back after each bout with winter.
In another four to six weeks, these few early flowers will be joined by thousands of their companions.
On a good warm day, their scent will be strongly present.
The sound of honeybees, taking a first spring meal, will season the air.
