It's already cold outside, and the rain that fell last night has become a thin sheet of ice on cars and porch steps. It's also encased all my hyacinths and daffodils in ice, and all my tulips that are about to bloom. They're forecasting a major snowstorm for tomorrow and some bitterly cold temperatures. I say "Boo" to that! I brought all my potted pansies and violas up to the porch to cover up tonight, and took a few photos of the blooming things because I'm afraid after this weekend they'll be flattened.
I snipped some muscari to bring inside--they just started to open up a few days ago. I love their smell. It's a subtle, grapey kind of smell--almost like grape soda. Plus they're just so diminutive and sweet.
My poor little redbud's blossoms are *this close* to opening up--we'll see if they make it through the ice.
Say buh-bye to the daffodils! I think their days are numbered.
Brr! I'm gonna make a run to the grocery store after getting Esther from school and do a little stocking up, just in case we do get dumped on. Then we can stay home and have cocoa and be cozy all weekend. I love snow when I don't have to go out in it. Although I do get a little stir-crazy after a couple of days!
