Ah, the daffodils gently swaying in the breeze, the

hyacinth in full bloom, new shoots coming off of the

rose bushes, iris poking through the ground, and the

snow is falling here in Glencoe .....

Designer flakes in Jacksonville but the garden is showing loads of color. One of the plants blooming en masse are Helleborus orientalis (Lenten roses).
The pic shows two plants.

The low in Mobile is 28 tonight. Enough of this already. I think this will be our last freeze.

Maybe this cold snap will bring me some fruit this summer. last year only one of four apple trees and two pears had a very few blooms and no set fruit, here in Rainbow City. I attribute that to not enough cold weather last winter.
BWT rj, I believe Glencoe is in zone 7.
