Some two weeks ago, we were dreading the arrival of an Arctic express, which was bound and determined to derail spring. At my son's house (some 20 minutes from us) he got six inches of snow (about 15 cm) and the temperature got down to minus six degrees (that's -21 C for some of my readers). Many spring flowers (including magnolias and cherries, all blooming early due to our exceptionally mild winter) that had bloomed early died. Others were adversely affected.
But nature has made a comeback. Today, it reached 72 F (22 C) with brilliant sunshine.
This is what today looked like in nearby Binghamton, New York.
Grape hyacinths (and a dandelion).
And, a couple of days ago, I took these pictures.
We remember the cherry blossoms and magnolias that were taken by the storm. I'm even wondering if the forsythias will skip blooming this year.
But spring, hopefully, has finally, truly, arrived.
Tomorrow, back to the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, with my post for "O".
