We did get the forecasted three inches of snow on Tuesday. And the bitter cold. On Wednesday morning, my husband asked what was wrong after hearing me shout, "Are you kidding me?" Our thermometer read 19 degrees! I almost felt like crying.
But spring isn't waiting any longer. I finally noticed that some tree buds are swelling. My tulips, hyacinths, and other perennials keep growing through the snow and bitter cold. After three days the snow was gone. Here are a few photos from my gardens.

The temperature forecast is for the mid 60's the rest of the week, so that should prompt a lot of quick growth.
