A few weeks ago I posted about all the things that were budding out - hoping it was going to be an early spring.
With snowdrops popping up - and pretty things to see and smell.
So last weekend I bought some pretty flowers to put out in the pots on the deck - a welcome to spring - Snow drops - Hyacinth - Pansies - Grape Hyacinth.
And then look what happened last night!!!!!!
The weather had turned cold cold cold right after I bought the new flowers - so they have been living safely indoors, on the dining room table - away from the cold and snow.
It never got above freezing today - the snow blew all around in gale force winds - the little birds shivered in the snow
But the pretties are safely warm.
Highs during the coming week are expected to be near or below freezing - with the lowest low temperatures expected to be near 15 degrees.
So the flowers will stay indoors - while the weather outdoors is a deepfreeze - waiting for spring.
