Jim Herlihy of New Jersey has captured scenes of the late winter season with perfection.

"I sent these photos to my mother in Maine before and after a small storm we experienced here in southern New Jersey. On Wednesday the temperature was 70 and on Thursday it snowed.  My mother, Jane Donelon, is a regular contributor and suggested I send in these pictures.  I am an enthusiastic gardener in Dennisville and always have several projects going on my three acre property. Mid winter is usually a time for cutting/maintaining woodland trails, but the early bulbs are starting to bloom along with witch hazels so I took a few pictures since we never know whether if this is the last snow we will see this year."
