Mud Season

2-24-16 SHORT HILLS: It’s been raining for two days after we had a nice weekend. The buds on the snowdrops are bigger, but they have not opened yet. The yard is soggy and muddy, and there are branches strewn all over. The big clean up will have to wait for the ground to solidify. Some shrubs have broken limbs and will need pruning, but even thinking about it means we’re way earlier than the last few years. The feeders get drained almost daily, but no seasonal migrants have arrived so far.
