Has Spring Sprung Already?

I just got back from a fantastic school vacation at Stowe, Vermont - cross country skiing at the Trapp Family (Sound of Music) resort, downhill at the Mt. Mansfield and snowshoeing up the Pinnacle Trail.

We were treated to a nice blast of fresh powder on our last day of skiing at Stowe and it was heaven. No chattering skis on groomed ice which is a real treat this winter.

While it seems like our local winter fun has just begun, else where it seems that spring has already sprung. A recent trip to our local big box store seems that the retailers are already on to summer! The snow shovels have been long replaced by bags of mulch and beach chairs! My brother from the Boston area says flowers are blooming!

I've gotten my brain thinking of spring lately while still wanting to enjoy some more snow sports before the dreaded mud season.

I spoke (wrote) too soon!
It was warm and spring-like out yesterday and drizzling this morning - but that rain just turned to snow! If it sticks I'll still have a chance to hang some ornaments on a snowy pine tree and get some photos for next Christmas - and I was sitting here sketching out ideas for spring shoots!

Great photos!
We've had only one snow storm of any consequence here - back in October! My daffodils will be up early this year again I"m sure.
You've inspired me to get out my camera and try shooting into Lightroom 3. I'm thinking of all those summer props I've got waiting to be put to creative use.
