Last of the winter snow?

In our garden this morning to photograph the final remnants of the snow that fell on Wednesday morning (right and below). Other than the evergreens and a solitary willow, trees in the garden are not showing signs of bursting into leaf yet. The przednówek drags on and on.

By this afternoon, the temperature is expected to get into double digits. This should prompt nature to speed up the onset of spring.

That, I hope, is that. While snow in large amounts is natural and fun, it's rightful place is in December and January. We may still be getting snow into late April, although I'd prefer to see the back of it. If it does return, it'd most likely be another light dusting. When this lot melts, I'd be delighted not to see any more until late November.
