Brown is a lovely color.
About 99% of the snow is gone. On my drive this morning, I enjoyed seeing the browns, tans, and beiges of the fields and the dead grass and leaves. I drove very slowly down my driveway, watching the south-facing bank for daffodil leaves. Some of them are up about half an inch. The first ones will bloom before the end of this month, and next month they will be everywhere. I'm looking forward to that! Then they'll be followed by the forsythias, redbuds, dogwoods, lilacs. etc. And in July and August we'll complain about the heat!
