I saw a nice Red-Tailed Hawk swoop in low when I was driving in Southboro. I pulled over and was able to get a quick photo before it flew off again.

I stopped at Tower Hill Botanic Garden again this afternoon to check on the snowdrops. The week's passage of time had made a big difference, especially with yesterday's warm temperatures. Witch hazel was in bloom in various colors and the snowdrops were looking beautiful (even though I know they are only out because someone removed the snow from on top of them).
I went into the building just to use the restroom but found myself unable to ignore the magnetic pull into the Limonae and Orangerie. I tried to take a different set of photos this time, really I did!

May I just add that as you walk through these buildings, you are entertained by beautiful live piano music. There are various tables and chairs or benches tucked into openings between the tropical plants, the sun is warming the rooms, and it's quite a break from winter. A lovely way to pass the afternoon!
