Jessica Decker, our nature photography blogger, shared her photos of the first glimpses of spring. On this unseasonably snowy day, they're a great reminder of what spring is supposed to look like.

My name is Jessica Decker and I have lived in Elkhart all of my life. I grew up in a subdivision out in the country between Elkhart and Bristol. Growing up in the country gave me a love of nature and the outdoors. I have always loved being outside rather than inside. That is one thing that I have in common with my fiancé, Douglas Decker. Together we have six children – two are grown, and one daughter is in the Army. One of our favorite things to do is go on little adventures around our area and take a lot of pictures. I have been given an amazing opportunity to blog for our hometown newspaper The Elkhart Truth and share some of these pictures of the nature in our area that I love so much. I am very excited. I hope that everyone enjoys seeing my pictures, our little adventures and the beauty that I see in Elkhart.
