Flowers in the Snow

We had the freakiest snowstorm Monday.

I think Mother Nature got April confused with January. It was cold, blizzardy, and not at all what one would envision for a spring day.

Since I had to trudge out to the mailbox anyway, I decided to snap a few photos of my poor little flowers being beaten and battered by the icy snow.

By early afternoon the snow stopped. The temperature climbed above freezing, and the sun came out about an hour before dusk, melting off most of the snow.

I hope my flowers won’t suffer from the nippy experience.

I love seeing the colorful, cheerful blooms. They are such a gorgeous reminder that spring is (nearly) here!
How about you? What is your favorite spring bloom?

  1. Our snow is finally melting. We do not have any flowers yet, but I am starting to see the leaves of the tulips and iris and I am excited! Last year I planted crocus, daffodils, tulips, grape hyacinths, and narcissus. We moved to this house in 2021. I realized last year we did not have any daffodils, which I had at my last house. I missed them, so I planted them last year. I am hoping they come up. We’ll see.

    1. I agree – we are running about a month late, but I’ll take spring weather whenever it decides to arrive. I hope you get a bunch of beautiful daffodils to cheer you when they bloom!

  2. The crocus and snowdrops have finally bloomed here. The daffodils and hyacinths are budded. Everything seems to be a month late including the snow, we too, had on Monday. Let’s hope it doesn’t do like last year and give us more snow in April. Monday, my daughter who lives in Kennewick asked, “ If April showers bring May flowers, what does April snow bring?”
