It is all gone now, but for a short while today we bore witness to the strange sight of snow hanging from my still flowering petunias and marigolds. There were several periods of wind driven snow and sleet throughout the day. In a way, it was fun. I spent some time outside and did some pre-season readiness-work on the snowblowers.
We have yet to have a hard freeze in these parts; the very few frost mornings that we had so far were mild enough for many of my annuals to survive. Tonight the air temperature will drop to 26F and finish the job of killing off all that remains of what was once a beautiful springtime.
