Signs of Spring

I went for a walk in the Burd Run riparian restoration park this morning and found some signs of encroaching Spring. These might just survive, as the temps don't look to dip blow freezing again, at least in the near future. I'm not putting away my sweaters yet, though.

    1. Don't let that Speedwell fool you, it's still pretty sparse, and the dominant colors in the landscape are still brown and gray. Bur Speedwell and Chickweed are usually the first tiny wildflowers up, and there are patches here and there.
