Eternal Spring Hopes

Spring has yet to arrive here officially, but this morning I saw the first two signs of the new season:  a snowdrop and a crocus.

Half of my front yard is still covered with a foot or so of snow, where I shoveled it off the driveway, and the raised bed in my back yard still has about four feet of snow where I piled it up so that my daughter could have a little back-yard sledding hill.  But the rest of the snow was washed away by a steady rain last evening.  Soon enough I'll be planting peas!
