With an early afternoon appointment, a windy morning, and a forecast of steadier rain later, I got out for an hour's walk this morning, again in the Mohawk River State Park. There's a very prolific patch of trout lilies here not far from the car, and I was curious to see their progress after a few days of rain and warmer temperatures. Unfortunately, spring seems to be arriving at a glacial pace this year, and there were still only their early speckled leaves and no flowers. In fact, I saw no flowers of any kind as I wandered around the trail system here. I got briefly spritzed a couple of times by passing showers, but nothing serious, and blue skies returned shortly. Looking forward to warmer temperatures and some progress over the next few days.
