I should be saving this for my Winter Wonders Wednesday feature, but Wednesday may be too late. Monday night into Tuesday we are supposed to have our first storm of the season, and these flowers may be gone.
In upstate New York.
My spouse and I took a walk and a drive yesterday and this is what we found.
An aster, in front of an old factory building scheduled for demolition next year.
A viburnum, at Cutler Botanical Gardens in Binghamton, New York. The white flower didn't want to come into focus, but it's there in the middle.
And finally, a blurry mystery - a plant with buds, and small white flowers. My iPhone 4S just wouldn't cooperate, but I suspect this is a different variety of viburnum.
I don't know whether to be overjoyed, or frightened. Meanwhile, other parts of the United States are paying for our mild weather -the ultimate price - tornadoes, floods, and death.
What will happen next?
And here I am, chronicling it on my blog.
What has your weather been like?
