So Long Snow Moon!

The ice on the pond has melted, the songbirds are back and the sunshine is warm! Even though we're still 20 days (and 3 hours, but who's counting) from meteorological spring on 1 March and 40 days from our astronomical vernal equinox: I'm calling it: Spring is here.

At right, the tonight's full moon, enroute to a penumbral eclipse in about 12 hours, shows there's no leaves on the treenot yet.
