a mixed message

 

These discarded tulips in a dumpster behind some greenhouses at Cornell University caught my eye a couple of weeks ago when we had so much snow and it seemed as if spring would never, ever come. Of course, spring did come and although there are still a few piles of dirty snow in hanging on in the shadows of buildings, they’re sharing groundspace with crocuses and snowdrops.

say it ain’t so

Snow in mid-October blankets our little village. Because many of the leaves are still on the deciduous trees, we were very worried that the weight of the snow — in Freeville we had at least two and a half inches of heavy, wet stuff — would do some serious damage. But it was gone by mid-day.
