Spring is coming!

The snowdrops are blooming and have been joined by lots of their friends. Five days ago this spot was under 15" inches of snow. Amazing what 60 degree temperatures can do. I can almost see the snow melting.

And a report on the sun's position at noon. It's a little cloudy today so the mark is difficult to see. The shadow is hitting the tape measure at about 18.5". The last time I took a picture (Jan 22), the mark was not quite to 8 inches. More than 10 inches in 4 weeks. Progress!

And the corner of the shadow has moved in line with the tape measure. The sun is now rising before 7am and not setting until around 5:50pm. More sun! More sun!
