Spring Photo Essay – 2017

By Jelane A. Kennedy

Spring sprung 10 days ago but here in the Northeast it still feels as though winter is trying to keep it’s icy grip!!

Although the light is at a new angle, at times when I got out in the morning it feels like we are just starting winter. The good news is the calendar says it is the end of March and that means April flowers will be showing up soon. As I look in our garden I am beginning to see the heroic tulips busting up through the snow.

Most of the photos that I’m sharing are from after the March 2017 blizzard.

But I’ll start with a photo taken this February after my truck was out one night and as I went to work this was what I found.

After the blizzard and the roads were clear, Eileen and I headed to Thacher Park  for some snowshoeing. This year we had more snow than last but it came in spurts with lots of melting between so we did not get to snowshoe much.
