Did I say Spring????

Woke up this morning to tree branches covered in ice. Good thing it is not windy out those branches could not take wind without breaking.
Now I see there is a layer of snow building up on everything.. Are we destined for a white Easter? I hope not!
It is a good day to stay inside and get something done. But it is so gloomy that I really do not feel like doing a thing.
My tulips are up, but they are coated in ice...will they bloom this year, or just freeze out?

Marching closer to spring?

Well according to the calendar we are slowly working our way to spring, and it is not really that cold out today...But, what about tomorrow, will it be below freezing? will it rain? will it snow?
I have noticed that some of the flowers have popped their heads above ground, BUT, will the next snow freeze them out, or will we actually see flowers from them this year?
My lilacs are also showing signs of maybe wanting to bud out...hopefully they also will not freeze.
A few warm sunny days would be so inspiring... But such is spring, we go from winter to mud season, and then finally to spring and wonder of wonders summer!  Just wish it would hurry up...tired of this gloom.
