Some shaded areas in the woods still have snow though most elsewhere has melted away. 

As I have mentioned before in this blog, Oklahoma winters can be quite beautiful.   We have grasses (I should learn the name of them) that turn orange and alizarin in our cold weather.  They grow along the highways and woods and glow against the dark green of the cedars and the white of snow. 

This scene was yesterday and, with the warmth of todays sunshine, the rest of the snow will be gone.  I will not miss it.  I long for spring and am thinking I need to go somewhere warmer for a bit, perhaps a sunny beach and a warm ocean would do the trick.
