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 .....

We actually had a few snow flurries here last nite in Santuck - but nothing stuck. AND, if we are not gonna get some snow, i want WINTER to GO AWAY!!! :)

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.

RE: Ya gotta love it

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.

RE: Ya gotta love it

Yes I had my 2yr out in it trying to catch snow in her hand she loved it, the lenten roses where so pretty with the snow around them and the anemones are also blooming ohhhhh cant wait for spring.
