Day 90 - Omens of spring

Not the show of color that I showed you yesterday. It still surprises me how much the 50 miles to Washington makes in the appearance of flowers every spring. The clematis around our lamppost is starting its growth. When the temperature gets a little warmer, it will grow a foot a day and and completely encase the lamppost. For a preview of June color, check out Marianne's post from last year. Around the clematis is a green ground cover called snow on the mountain.
