Winter-weary as we are and with a chance of snow lingering in Tuesday’s forecast, spring is struggling to keep its foot in the door. In downtown Little Rock, trees are showing lots of bud swell, with blooms and leaves ready to burst forth. Further west, on campus, daffodil leaves have pushed above the soil. Here on the mountain, we’re a few weeks behind. However, spring is showing its colors. Below are photos taken this morning.

SWEET — This very sweet smelling shrub is among the first to bloom each spring, but this year, it preceded even the violets.
PROTECTED — A bluet pushes up between fall leaves.
