This is an update to an earlier post that showed the maple tree blossoms just beginning to open. Now they are in full bloom. The air seems different, not just unseasonably warm with a reminder of the calendar. Yesterday felt more like spring has sprung. Warm. Birds singing. The phlox has begun to bloom. The bridal veil spirea is blooming. It is probably difficult to see on this photo that is sized for the internet, and I didn't notice when I was snapping the picture, but there are strands of spider web stringing from blossom to blossom. I'm ready.
