first day of spring (?)

Woke up here in Philly to about an inch of snow on the ground to welcome the first day of spring. Totally unexpected, there was no forecast for snow and I didn't cover anything up last night. A little snow on the bok choi and lettuce won't harm them. The sun is shining and this snow will be completely melted away in an hour from now. You never know what to expect with early season gardening, and that's what makes it fun!

Lettuce seem so fragile and then each Spring I'm surprised by it's ruggedness. Once sprouted, it can survive the fickle temperature swings of early Spring/late Winter and then thrive to feed us. Amazing. This photo captures it all beautifully.
