What this world needs is more flowers.
Here in upstate New York, it was warm yesterday. We had a record high of 48F (8.8 Celsius) and our snow mostly melted (just in time for another snowstorm).
In my backyard, a Lenten Rose has been trying to bloom for the past month. The snow falls. The snow melts. The snow falls. The snow melts. We used to get January thaws here, but then winter rolled right back in. This winter, the fall and melt pattern has kept up all winter.
Meanwhile, both of my pansy plants are still alive and well, although neither are blooming.
This morning, the snow is back, the temperature is 22 (-5.5C) and, it feels like 11 (-11.5 C) with the wind chill. It's still dark, so no snow photos for you.
Welcome back, winter.
