9 January 2016 Signs of Spring?

Phineas had mended to a point where he was walking normally and had good energy levels. We decided to give him a few caching walks while geocaching in Medina. I usually start looking for skunk cabbage in February hoping for an early sign of spring, but today was an early sighting.

The pond at River Styx Park had not frozen yet. There was thin ice over much of the surface with small patches of open water. The temperature was mild, but the day never got bright.

The snowless woods also let us see the familiar leaves of hepatica. These leaves were very early.
