Spring Watch 2001

It is April and we have had our first taste of spring. I have been on the lookout to see if there were any early warning signs of spring approaching and found the following as of April 5, 2001.

Spring blooms in front of Templeton

spring_flower.jpg (74582 bytes)

Now, some people might consider this a weed, but to me this small flower is a definite sign that spring is on the way.

spring_croc.jpg (80434 bytes)

These flowers, crocuses are also apparently a weed, but again, a sign that it might not stay winter forever!

spring_daff.jpg (77414 bytes)

This lonely daffodil is definitely in the flower category.

spring_grass.jpg (77537 bytes)

Another sure sign of spring--green grass coming up from what appeared to be dead ground.

spring_foot.jpg (77781 bytes)

This is my foot. It is the first time it has seen light in New Jersey in a long time.

spring_nick.jpg (108059 bytes)

Another sign--Nick in shorts.

spring_picnic.jpg (75135 bytes)

People eating lunch outside--without jackets on!

spring_tree.JPG (108933 bytes)

This was just cool--the shadow of a tree in the quad.

Alexander Hall from the street side--see the green grass!

Alex from the quad--the trees don't have leaves yet, but I am watching for them!
