This winter has been so strange. We’ve had practically no snow. This is the first time that I can remember that we’re approaching March and I haven’t gone skiing yet. We’ve had some cold weather, but all so dry. And now lately it’s been warmer. The last few days we’ve have had record warm February days with temperatures that feels like April. I mentioned that I saw some pussy willows earlier this winter, but now they are really emerging. This is at least one month early for this part of the country. Here are my first shot of pussy willows for 2014.
