WEATHER UPDATE

RE: Yesterday's post...

When I went to work this morning, it was 60 degrees. When I left work this afternoon, it was 42 degrees with a brisk, cold wind blowing. At present, it's 10:00 PM, and the temperature has fallen another 10 degrees. Yes, we're at freezing temps now. Bummer!

I cut all the daffodils that were in bloom, minus a few that were on their way out anyway,to bring in, and I snipped several small branches off the crabapple tree in the hopes that I can force them to bloom inside. They're so, so delicate and pretty. I do so hope they'll open up. I also brought in a lot of forsythia, some grape hyacinths, and some miniature daffodils. I'm afraid it's "adiĆ³s" to anything that remains outside, including the tulips whose buds were not up far enough for me to clip off and rescue. EERGH!

My mom always reminds me that "we can't control the elements" when I begin to whine about the cold weather. She's totally right, but damn, I hate to see my spring flowers freeze.

Oh well...
