Would you believe there are blossoms beneath the snow on our poor Bradford pear tree? On May 2nd, the day before the snowstorm, I heard bees working in this tree. I took this picture at about 8:30 am just before the heavy snow and gusty winds began snapping power lines and trees a few miles up the road leaving us without power until 8 pm. We’re grateful the power was restored so quickly.
Our tulips thought the snow was a dirty trick. Miraculously, they came through the snow and wind pretty well. The temperature is back up to 70 degrees today and they are happy again…and so I am. I’m back to weeding and thinning my lettuce.
