See Spot on Jupiter. See Spot Glow.
New thermal images from powerful ground-based telescopes show swirls of
warmer air and cooler regions never seen before within Jupiter's Great
Red Spot, enabling scientists to make the first detailed interior
weather map of the giant storm system.

Masses of yellow and purple giant crocuses are blooming in the little rain garden, and the columbine is well up also. Several yellow and cream snow crocuses are blooming in the goddess garden. The daffodils and tulips near the driveway are leafed out but not blooming yet; the giant crocuses there are blooming purple, yellow, and purple-and-white striped. Honeybees are busy in the flowers; I checked out the bee tree and indeed the girls are to-ing and fro-ing with great enthusiasm. If I have some time on a pretty day, I'll try to snap some pictures.
If anyone local wants some starts of herbs or other plants, let me know. This is the season when nurseries start shipping the dormant stuff, so if you want a tree seedling or some raspberries now is a good time for that. Herbs I usually transplant later in spring, although I could dig some up and pot them for indoor care.
