Before the Snow…

Apparently we could not escape winter’s wrath, even if it was supposed to end weeks ago, and our most recent snowstorm was one of the worst (which isn’t saying much, except for its late arrival). To counter the ill-feelings from that (and the possible damage to the cherry and lilac buds which were already well on their way to burst) here are a few photos of a pretty pink spring bulb bloom, taken the last time I was in Boston (and before this snowy nonsense).

A late winter storm can be a danger to bulbs like this – but if it’s quick and goes away soon they can usually recover. This last one stayed cold for so long that such a recovery will prove difficult at best.
