After four days of nice, warm weather, we were starting to feel complacent that spring had finally settled in. But oh, no. It dropped well below freezing again last night and this morning there was another half-inch of new snow—the crunchy, frosty, diamond-like kind. Yesterday actually started out quite beautiful, and I made a few new studies of the emerging Pushkin snowdrops.
But today about half of them are ice-covered and bent over in apparent submission. Others, mainly the ones that hadn’t yet opened any blossoms, appear healthy and ready to bloom when they get the chance. Here’s hoping!
