Yesterday... and Today

What a difference a day makes, as we say! The snow started yesterday afternoon, and here we are. I was talking to a naturalist yesterday who told me she had heard a Broad-tailed Hummingbird, so they may wishing they hadn't come back quite so early.

Certainly the finches enjoyed the thistle seed while the snow was coming down late yesterday. They've even figured out the new feeder, which requires them to hang upside down, a technique the other species apparently can't master.

Just for comparison, here again are the spring flowers I photographed yesterday. That makes this what I call a daffodil snow—typical spring weather here!
