We went for a walk in the Arboretum today to celebrate the first day of spring. It was very cold (with temperatures right around freezing), and we couldn't find anything green. Not very spring-like, but not atypical of Wisconsin! We found some Magnolia buds that were the next best things to something green. Though I have some vague memory that these buds look this way in December too. I'll have to check next winter!
Two turkeys and lots of robins were other companions we found on our cold walk!
