Buds Against a Blustery Blue Sky

Many of our Japanese Magnolia began blooming during a warm spell 
a few weeks ago. Well, those are dead now, succumbing to February's
 inevitable quick freezes. These are just budding out and survived
 more than seven inches of rain earlier this week, two blustery days
 and now another frost. But at least the skies are blue again!

They stand out well! They'll be back.

Here we're still under a snow pack and the temperatures have dropped yet again.

I'm so glad that spring flowers are tough! I bet these made you happy while they lasted.
