It's no secret that it's been a cold, snowy winter. Certainly the coldest and snowiest I've experienced since I moved to New Jersey. The clematis vine has been hidden under a blanket of snow since just after Christmas. This morning's photo is blurred by the sleet falling as I was outside making the picture. And if today's weather forecast is any indication, it will be wearing snow and ice for some time to come.
I'm looking forward to that.
