It was 27 degrees F at 7:30 this morning under cloudy skies, as I recall. Had the briefest of rides but did get out to record the bit of snow. (Yesterday it was in the 50s.)
Noticed witch hazel in festive bloom.
Early irises also were beginning to emerge, and, of course, there were hellebores.
Elsewhere were unphotographed snowdrops, aconite, and crocuses. And the day, as the season, proceeded.
