The long melt

This post pretty much speaks for itself. It just details the long, slow melt of this year’s snow from our back deck from the first day of spring until the 18th of April, when it was finally all gone.  It has been a long, cold spring and even as  I’m writing this (on April 25th) – it seems as if winter still doesn’t want to let go (it snowed yesterday!). — well I took a while to get this posted.  It now being May 13!  We’ve had a week of summer even (that likely explains the lack of blogging).  The garden is coming along nicely. I’ll add a current photo to the end if I can.

February 27th (ish) - the snow is up to the top of the table.

On the first day of spring, the snow is still up to the top of the table... and then the slow melt starts.
