These photos were taken at this time last Spring. Nothing is flowering yet this year. I saw Skunk Cabbage coming up at the edge of the lake yesterday and Trout Lily and Dogtooth Violet leaves were poking up through the leaf liter in the woods, but no sign of flowers yet – not surprising considering we had another inch of snow yesterday morning.
My choir has concerts coming up in a few weeks. Last night’s rehearsal was grueling, and quite scary, considering we have only three rehearsals remaining. Not the first time we have been in this position. Somehow it always comes together in time for the performances, but I’m sure our director will have some sleepless nights this week.
