Last week at Embshoff Woods Nature Preserve, I saw it! A first sign of spring: yellow wild flowers blooming in the warm February sunshine. What a great surprise for fellow Operations employee Eric Estridge and me. We discovered the open petals in the forest floor while reviewing the area around the maintenance building.
It was only a week ago that we had several inches of snow, and we even saw flurries this week. But spring is coming — and here is the proof.
Get out this weekend and see if you can find your own signs of spring. It will warm your heart, Eric and I promise!
