While March wasn't an excessively warm month as they go, it still marks the month where most plants 'do something' about getting going on their annual cycle of growth. The evidence is all around, not noticeable daily, but when you look back after a week, you notice greener lawns and fields and trees with shades of light green starting to show.
Today helped a little bit, even though Environment Canada said we were to have sunless day, we had a nice afternoon of sun poking out, just enough to help out the heli-skiers who had what looked like lots of fresh spring powder snow to ski on in the mountains around the Bella Coola Valley this morning.
