Frosted Hyacinths

Wednesday was the official first day of spring, but to me, and I’m sure many of you, it seemed like the middle of winter. Here’s why.

Last fall I cleaned up my front yard’s flower bed and planted 60 bulbs. I have been dying for warm weather to arrive so they would bloom. Now I’m thanking my lucky stars that only this little guy made an appearance before the snow hit on Thursday afternoon.
