Snow fell last night, damping the sunny enthusiasm of the daffodils. They looked so great this year, popping up all over the back hill and on the berm under the spruces.
With the mild winter behind us and a lot of warm spring days, I had put out the patio furniture on our new patio, hung the hummingbird feeder to attract the early scouts, and even put out the pillows on the chairs in the gravel garden.
Spring clean up and cutting back and transplanting was well underway in the garden. The star magnolia had started to bloom.
Everything today is under a coating of wet sloppy snow. There is more coming, and high winds, and it's all entirely unwelcome.
