A Sad Image from the Storm


Tete-a-Tete Daffodils in the Snow
The nor'easter that blew into the region during the early part of the week was relatively kind to the Baltimore region as compared to Central New York where over two feet of snow fell. 

There were, however, casualties from the cold, icy, snowy mix that wound-up covering my lawn. The tete-a-tete daffodils struggled to keep their bloom in the light but became overwhelmed by the onslaught of the precipitation.

I was careful as I shoveled the walkway, which was covered by about three inches of slush by the time I got around to it, not to cover the struggling sign of springtime. Just a short few days ago these same flowers were gaily proclaiming the arrival of Spring.

Monday is the official beginning of Spring. I hope the snow will be gone by then, at least from my yard!
