A Second Look--March 13, 2013

It's been a good week with more days of sunshine than rain and more days of warmth than cold.  The crocus have started to bloom here and there, and their sparseness makes each one of them a treat to find. I think the groundhogs have emerged from hibernation because I found digging at one of the groundhog holes. I also found my mandatory bones. Both were very leached, so it was hard to tell what they were. However, I think one of them used to be a dog's chewing bone, and the other one belongs to some kind of mammal--maybe it's pelvis.

Here's What I Found This Week During a Second Look.

White Crocus

First digging I've seen at this groundhog hole this year.

The snowdrops have finally opened a little.
