Despite the cold this morning and that predicted for tomorrow, the flora would certainly say that spring has sprung. Not sure what the fauna is saying. Took a walk through the Arboretum while J wento to Sunday evening services and took these pictures - enjoy!
There were lots of varieties of daffodils in bloom, as well as about 4-5 kinds of magnolias.

Then I ran into my buddy Pete the Possum - walked within 3 feet of where he was getting some sun and he didn't move. Oh, I could see him breathing so I knew he wasn't dead, but it was weird. My understanding is that possums rarely get rabies (they have a low body temp compared to other critters) so I didn't worry too much about him not running away - I supposed he was playing possum.
