Crocus - Hoping for the Warmth
When I got home from my terrific painting day yesterday (it is always SO GOOD to paint with friends!!), my sweet husband had rigged a heater in the garage for the kitties ... and that act of kindness just about made me sob!
It's been so deeply cold and I cannot fathom how folks further north with temps in the minuses cope with it. Mercy.
So today, crocus ... a hope for warmer weather soon!! When I left the arboretum earlier this week, I spotted the leaves of several crocus and hyacinth poking through the ground. I don't know if they'll survive this bitter weather ...
I'm off to the trade show portion of the conference. The blooming, greenhouse grown plants will brighten the day ... but it will be a mighty cold one nonetheless.
Stay warm .. stay safe.
