It's March 5 2013 and another winter storm barreling through the US. Good news is if we have enough storms they may stop naming them! Anyway, due to the weather and the trees and bushes, spring is way off. With Easter on March 31, there will be no "easter lillies" in bloom here. I always watch the trees for signs of spring and there is nothing yet to indicate even a regular spring so look for late frosts and late fall harvests. Here is a picture from a couple of days ago.
