Better Late Than Never, Finally Seeing Some Signs Of Spring Flowers.

For the folks here in Northeastern Pennsylvania, it’s been a long cold and snowy Winter that just doesn’t want to end. In some years I have seen crocuses  in February and by now daffodils and forsythia have been in  full bloom. Not this year. Still haven’t seen a crocus although these two should be open…

The temperature may have been below normal today , but the abundant sunshine sure felt good. No doubt Spring is here. Decided to hike out  and watch the sunset from the rocks behind my house.
