Sunday’s Flower

On Sunday, the high temperature was in the 90s, but toward the end of this week, the low temperatures are to be in the low 30s. Only one flower opened in the garden, today. I expect that there will not be many more before all freezes. I must get outside to harvest the last of the chives, which have grown nicely where they were transplanted, earlier this fall. When we get snow, then wildflower and grass seed can be sown for germination in the spring.

All can sleep, then.

Spring Frost

Our storm materialized, although no snow seems to remain on the ground, even though the temperature reached freezing, this morning. The neighbors were out in their winter clothes, covering their flower and vegetable plots.

I am not sure what my tulips are going through, and I expect I won’t venture forth to find out until the winds and rain have stopped.
