Harbingers of spring
silent strength I wish I had

Hanging in sunshine

Hope all is good Elaine Patricia.
So wonderful the way plants mark the seasons for us. Blessings to you and hope you are well.
Mere in English refers to a lake that is broad in relation to its depth, e.g. Martin Mere. A significant effect of its shallow depth is that for all or most of the time, it has no thermocline.
I learned something new today… thermocline: a steep temperature gradient in a body of water such as a lake, marked by a layer above and below which the water is at different temperatures.
We have some Sweet Williams or Star Asters attempting to bloom in the warmer protected area in front of the house. Odd this winter weather.
I read somewhere that it is really just a few plants that have catkins.
The weather hath made my nose run again… though hubby is playing golf in 50 F weather!
