Front Yard Flowers on Monday: Week 3

Since last week’s report, we’ve enjoyed a few days in the 60s and then a snowstorm.  Today is cold, below freezing, in fact, and a Nor’easter is on the horizon for later tonight.  The forecast suggests that this flowerbed with the remnants of Friday's snow is likely to be fully covered by a foot of snow by this time tomorrow.  

Spring bulbs may look delicate, but they are a hardy crew and when the snow melts, the green shoots will be there, reaching toward the sun and setting us up for some lovely blooms.

Sometimes I suspect that Mother Nature delivers Spring in fits and starts to remind us to truly appreciate the the loveliness of the season.  The coming late-Winter snow will surely have that effect on me.
