Waiting for Spring

I have spent most of the winter on my laptop. You can't do much gardening under 15 inches of snow, so I turn to my inside hobbies in the winter.
I have spent the winter working on Genealogy, I hobby I have had for about 10 years. I only have time to work on it in the winter, gardening takes up my time for the rest of the year.
I also have made an effort to enter my library into Librarything. So far I have entered a little over 800 books. I would like to get the rest of them in, but that is going to take some time. I mostly have my garden books left to enter.
I have not seen any plants peeking out of the snow yet, but I am sure that can't be far away. I can't get to the back of my property to see if the Witch hazel is blooming, maybe by the weekend the snow will melt enough to get to it.
I do have an Orchid getting ready to bloom, under a grow light in the basement. That will keep me going until the daffodils start.
