Last snowfall for spring?

The yard is blanketed in snow again, after a surprisingly heavy snowfall this week. We were just starting to gear up for spring - hearing robins and woodpeckers, tapping maple trees, finding wild leek tips peeking out of the soil - but this gave us one more chance to appreciate winter.  We toured the yard sleuthing out the fresh bird and animal tracks in the snow; built one last snow fort; cut yellow dogwood to bring into the house (to sprout early leaves); and enjoyed warming up in the sunny greenhouse.
