Winter Is Coming

When one thinks of March weather, one thinks of the spring.  And for the past week, it wasn’t so bad.  But the temperature has dropped significantly, enough so that there was snow today.  And it will continue to drop for the next several days with a snow storm anticipated for early next week.  And I’m not sure how that bodes for the plants that have already started blooming for the next season.

The leaves on the Doublefile Viburnum are aggressively starting to make their presence known.

And it looks like two and a half flowers are starting to bloom on the Ann Magnolia Tulip tree.  It’s going to be real interesting to see how these almost flowers handle the predicted snowfall next week.
