April (Snow) Showers Frost Our Flowers
What with all the warm weather and sunshine lately, we decided to buy some plantings for the yard a couple weekends ago. Laura and the boys had fun adding flowers to the various beds and things were looking better than they had for some time (our gardening adventures having taken a backseat to kid-chasing for a couple years now).
So of course it follows that we’d get the first real snow of the season a few days later. On April 7, mind you, the day before Easter. Pretty unheard of in this neck of the woods. But as they say no good deed goes unpunished. The pansies and a few others took it in stride, but a good number of blooms were lost to frostbite. Maybe we’ll try again in a few weeks.
