Snow on Kinickinick


know spring is not actually here yet, but we have had some very spring-like weather in the Portland area this late-winter.

I recently posted about all the native plants breaking into bloom.  In the time since that post, my Red-flowering Currant has joined the party.

Now we've had several nights of 30 degree temperatures, and not much warming during the day.  It tried to snow yesterday, and it looks like it succeeded sometime last night.

Not much snow to speak of, but enough to give us - and the plants - a reality check.

I'm not sure if this soothes my Spring Fever, or just makes it that much worse, but March 20th is still out there.  Slowly making its way to us.
