Still winter temperatures around here, but no snow lately. Most of what we had is melting steadily. I'm really ready for Spring and puttering around outside!
Backyard brook/swamp/creek is full and full of ice.
Lonely tomato cage and deer netting awaiting the warmer seasons.
A red shamrock and a purple tradescanthia reach for the meager winter sun during a recent snowstorm.

View from above show the various items in this seasonal arrangement, all things found around the yard by digging.
Common late winter site: My sneakers and melting snow.
Plants like Foxgloves which don't lose their leaves, warm up faster than the bare ground around them.
