Today’s photos are from Amy in Hershey, Pennsylvania. She says, “I really abhor the ice and hail this close to spring, but it melts quickly and I love the little icy prisons the plants become trapped in.  The willow was standing tall by mid afternoon, and the crocuses are opening their blooms again, so nature fights back as always!” Thanks, Amy, for sharing these with us!

    Beautiful photos. I especially like the one with the bright green of the evergreen peeking through the ice.

    I am with you about being done with snow and ice this time of year. In fact, I posted on my Facebook that once spring arrives, snow becomes a four-letter word. :-)

    The ability of plants to adjust to the crazy swings of temps and moisture boggles my mind. Mama Nature did a fine job with her babies... Great photo, and I'm so glad it was in your back yard!

    These are so wonderful -- I like getting that reminder that Mother Nature does always prevail.
