The sun shone!

I went out to our apple tree meadow to practice my Tai Chi this morning and what do you know - the mist actually burned off and the sun shone. I was inspired to rake some of the piles of Big Leaf Maple leaves that collected in the fenced in garden area in order to allow the early flowers to be seen.

First snowdrops blooming in the shelter of hellebore leaves.
