Last Wednesday was gorgeous, Thursday was miserable with rain and wind, Friday was sunny but cold.

The Cornelian cherry tree (Cornus mas) next to Panther Hollow Lake in Schenley Park was close to blooming yesterday but the flowers remained cautious, above. Take a good look at this tree this spring. When the lake is re-done it will be gone.

Meanwhile Thursday’s rain had turned to ice by Friday morning. Notice the straight-edge and wavy lines.

The weather will be warmer this weekend so get outdoors when you can.

Happy First Day of Spring!
