A few days in Lake Placid, New York shows ice still covers many streams,
And snow still covers much ground, particularly really high ground like a distant mountain peak.
Up north, spring snow sports like downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and ice skating are in full swing, but warming temperatures will soon push these winter activities into memory. There’s no doubt that Lake Placid is in a beautiful region, but my heart welled with springtime when I came home to these …
My little batch of iris reticulata had just started to poke their tiny green shoots out of the ground when I left, and just 4 days later they were in full bloom. Great to come home to.
