Spring Storm

Spring looked like it arrived, until today.  The snow was almost all gone, bare ground with robins hopping around.  Then, heavy rain swept through yesterday and early this morning the end of the storm turned to snow.  We have 3″ of white stuff.  My potted hyacinths help remind me spring is still here.

Out in the garden, the  crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils and tulips are just popping their heads up. What a rude surprise for them!  The next few days are supposed to be warm, turning the snow to what farmers call poor man’s fertilizer.  Extra moisture for rapidly re-awakening plants.
