In 2010 it snowed. The trees were much further along in leafing out and many of the poplar trees were permanently bent or snapped in half from the weight of the snow.
Last year nature lulled us into a false security of no more snow until fall with flurries in the beginning of June.
The bare spots to the left is a result of radiant heat from the house. That may be the salvation of the delphinium.
I knew I should have taken pictures of the white icelandic poppies when they boasted their showy heads yesterday.
Retrospectively, I suppose I shouldn’t have been so eager to pull up the yellow and orange offerings, it would have provided a more interesting picture.
I am a little worried about our flowering shrubs, hopefully it didn’t get cold enough to damage the buds. I am especially concerned about our crab apple tree, there was indications for a wealth of flowers, increasing the possibility of actually seeing fruit this year.
