. . . and a snowstorm tomorrow

DSCN1563

Someone planted these crocuses up against the south wall of our house well over 20 years ago–at any rate, before we moved in. The area is now one of my perennial borders, but the crocuses, in spite of frequent disturbances and crowding, just keep coming back every spring–first the purple ones, then yellow, and finally white and striped. They’re not native, but they’re also not invasive, and they frequently attract early bees.

According to NOAA’s State of the Climate website, this past winter was one of the warmest on record worldwide, the exception being northeastern North America, where yet another snowstorm is predicted for tomorrow. And we thought winter was over.

Stay warm and dry.
