A taste of summer - but just a taste for now

It's that rare kind of day, when the season seems to have sped up and stumbles nearly into the next one.  (But we'll have a relapse into chilly and even rain-mixed-with-snowy weather in a couple of days.)  I thought I'd celebrate by showing some "then and now" pictures.

Then - two weeks ago:

 And now - today:

Yes, folks, those are actually wild turkeys in my neighbor's yard. 

(And yes - there is a Twins game today.)

I just love the photo of the buds. I can't remember ever seeing anything like them - do you know what they are? (This may be a bit of midwestern spring I've forgotten. I still get forsythia and pussy willows right, but it's been a while!)

It seems to me you've had an unusually long winter. True or not I know you're ready - glad spring is coming along!
