early spring in Minnesota
Early spring in Minnesota is not the prettiest time of year. Even though it’s warm (nearly 60 degrees out today when I took these pictures on my walk), it’s still grey and frozen, there’s no green yet, the trees are still bare. There’s still old, dirty piles of snow in areas that don’t get direct sunlight. Even after having a rainstorm last night. I still expect at least one more snow before we hit summer, but the bitter cold has lifted, we’re seeing neighbors again for the first time in months, going out for a walk isn’t an ordeal – or perilous to your health, and I’m beginning to believe that winter is on its way out.
Happy spring (yes, I’m a day late for the equinox)!
