Spring in February?

I certainly wouldn’t have believed it and I still don’t, but the Canada Geese have returned already predicting a very early spring.   I still expect some major cold weather and snow storms and hope the geese will be ok. But – the critters seem to know the weather and their forecasts are often more accurate… Continue reading Spring in February?

Winter at the English Garden & Leo Mol Sculpture Garden
