Hi 36°F Lo 31°F

Once again, the Farmer's Almanac got it right...  Yesterday it was rainy, cold and it snowed! What flowers that I did have in bloom were droopy, wet and wouldn't have looked very attractive in a photo.  

As a tribute to the Almanac and to participate in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, I am posting photos of Snowdrops 'Galanthus sp' (seems appropriate) that I took a few weeks ago! 

To see a larger display of blooming flowers visit  May Dreams Gardens.
