The Daffodils are starting to bloom as well as the Crocus (Krokus? "Long Stick Goes Boom" is an excellent song!) The roses and trees are budding as well. This appears to be the point in the year where we transition from Dark and Cold to Dark Cold AND Wet. To be fair, the giant gas ball of light and heat has made itself known in the airspace above Yamhill. All to brief, i have to admit.
You can still find many opportunities to lose your boots in 3" to 5" of Yamhill mud if you hurry and act now. This is a one time offer.
