Over at MinnPost Greta Kaul tugs at our sensibilities by providing a hopeful illustrated guide to Spring.

Kaul writes about a group of naturalists, the Minnesota Phenology Network, "who record the time of seasonal flora and fauna events across the state of Minnesota. ... MinnPost analyzed the network's data set to find the average dates of a selection of signs of spring in Minnesota. Because the date things happen in a given year can vary wildly based on location, we've limited out analysis to observations in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area and to phenomena that have three or more recorded observations over time."

See Greta Kaul's lovely watercolors and notes here.
