Seen while walking yesterday: an evergreen, in a yard, on which someone had in a colder season hung several large metal red balls, Christmas ornaments. It has been above fifty Fahrenheit for much of the last few days, but because (as I finally figured out) the ornaments were both metal (so they conserve cold) and out of direct sunlight, each ball was covered in a fragile shell of real unmelted ice. Icicles were still reaching down from the bottoms of the balls.
In the greening grass underneath the tree, the ground was entirely covered in blooming crocuses. No snow visible anywhere else for literal blocks.
Sometimes I do wish I carried a camera. Mostly it would not be worth it.
