April (snow) showers

Snow this morning, on the flowers. The native plants - like these violets - are a more sure sign of spring than the showy non-natives; the indigenous plants seem to "know" more about the weather and don't leaf out or flower too early.

But sometimes even they guess wrong!

A huge but very short windstorm swept through Three Rivers on Monday night, bringing trees and tree limbs down on the roads and highways - and fences.

Easter Forsythia

The Chinese shrub Forsythia, although not native to the area, is so widely planted that it has become a marker of spring.

Happy Easter!
