Snow?!

We awoke to snow this morning. What?! The Farmer’s Almanac had actually predicted this though I had hoped they would be proven wrong.

It is not a lot of snow and it is supposed to be warmer later so it will melt. But....

..there were daffodils blooming here. We had heavy rain yesterday and they were already soaked and laying on the ground…..if they were above the snow they would probably be alright but now I am not so sure.

The pink of the heather glistens through the snow. It will be alright.

Will this little pulmonaria be a casualty as well?

That small red blur is my pea fence. The peas are planted but not up yet. Hopefully they are safe under the snow.

New England winters (and summers for that matter) have always been a bit unpredictable. But this new climate we have created is even more extreme and very changeable. It will be a challenge for growing things and for those who tend them for sure.
