Sad Spring

It’s snowing as I write this, and when Kasey and I walked downtown today we saw the tulips and daffodils around the Statehouse drooping in the face of the unseasonable cold.  I hope they can bounce back, but some of the petals look permanently damaged.  Spring flowers aren’t hardy enough to endure multiple days of snow and bitter wind and sub-freezing temperatures.

This crappy weather is why Mom counseled that you shouldn’t plant flowers before Mothers’ Day.
