The seasons will change in a couple of days, yet, when I checked the forecast this morning, snowflakes were in the forecast for the second day of spring. I was glad to see that by afternoon the predictions had been modified slightly for the better.
I am anxious to get the spring garden fully underway and start enjoying freshly harvested produce.
It was warm enough today for a green snake to come out from hibernation to enjoy the sunshine. We met him for the first time on a warm day about a week ago when Faye spotted him on the trellis where the Jasmine and yellow Jessamine grow. He spent the entire afternoon today curled up in the same spot on top of the trellis.
Pardon the bouncing camera.
I intended to keep an eye on him as the evening shadows came over to discover where he takes shelter from the cold. I was surprised that he went upwards instead of down. I became distracted by other activities and failed to learn the location of his hideout.
Reemergence from dormancy is reassurance that spring is indeed on the way.
