Every year it seems here in our mountains spring don't come easy. Never mind that a month ago we had two weeks of summer. Winter still keeps pushing in. I took this picture Monday morning from my car on my way out of my neighborhood to Baltimore. I scraped four inches off my car before leaving and I'm told we had four more that day. When I returned the next afternoon all the snow was gone.
We had two pleasant spring days. I just came in from a long walk in the nearby woods. I needed only a T-shirt. Now weather report warns of a freeze tonight that may damage some plants. Looks like winter may win this week.
But I know that sooner or later spring will out. The reluctant trees will open their leaves. I will put my plants out to stay (I've already had them out and in twice!) The lake will start to warm up.
