Can you believe this??


I have to look at the calendar again and confirm that it is the middle of March.  Can it really be that we are expecting another snow storm this late in the game??   The answer is, yes, indeed, we are supposed to get 5 to 8 inches of snow tonight and a wintry mix tomorrow that will probably freeze it into an unworkable mess.  What can one do?  One certainly can’t fight Mother Nature.  Well, the only thing I can think of doing is to post a few more flower pics that I took in the Smith College greenhouse and sit back and ride it out.
So here you are.

Not snow here, but lots of cold rain and overcast skies. The flowers were a welcome diversion, Barbara, and so colorful.

Wish I had known about this when we lived there. You have had quite the winter. Down here we have had several one inch snows. Kind of becoming a running joke.
