March this year has been a temperature feud.  While Winter is still mostly in control, Spring has already made some inroads.  We had two days last month that hit 70°F; the typical average high for here in Bellefonte in February is 35°F.  The highest in March thus far has been 55°F.  But we have also had lows of late down into the 20s.  And the swings between the two have often been rapid and significant; two days after the 55°F high we had a low of 28°F.  This has got to have been keeping the local plants and critters confused.

Nonetheless, we have seen hints of Spring popping up despite Winter's hold (e.g., on 2/24/2023 I posted shots of a robin, a crocus, and some snow drops as our "First Signs of Spring").  This past Sunday (3/12/2023) our first daffodil opened.  There are lots more buds on the way, but thus far, this has been the only one to brave the cold and snow by opening.
