Ever-lasting spring

One of the things I love about spring flowers, is that the blooms last for weeks.

Or at least, under normal circumstances they do…

Like quite a few other, mid-week our temps dropped and Wednesday morning we woke up to a pile of the white stuff.

It wasn’t alot – maybe an inch or so… but it was wet and HEAVY.

All my poor pretty blooms bent over and covered in snow.

By the afternoon, most of the snow had melted.

But the garden was definitely looking the worse for wear.

By Friday, the sun was out, it was much warmer, and most of the flowers had bounced back

Though some of the daffies were still drooping.

The Grape Hyacinths are all doing nicely

More tulips are popping out every day.

Even my Turkistan Tulips!

And the first Pasque flower has bloomed, with many more to follow!

Mother nature just can’t keep a good garden down!

    Oh, no…..I’ve had to cover up my little deck garden with trash bags all week because of frost warnings. April can be so cruel.

    Being a month of so ahead of you seasonally, all those beautiful spring flowers have finished blooming for the season. I did see a big clump of daisies on my walk this morning which were so pretty. They will probably be cut down the next time the public works department mows the grass along the roads/sidewalks.

    It never failed that the azaleas in Orlando would be blooming beautifully and we would get a gale/rain that knocked all the blooms off. Every DANG YEAR!
