The temperatures continue to bounce up and down like a kid on a trampoline. The last two days have been in the 80’s, but today tiny ice pellets are being blown sideways in a bone chilling 21 degrees. So good bye to the flowers that have already bloomed. These pictures were taken yesterday.
Then came the daffodils. Last year I moved the bulbs from a bed beside the house. They had not done very well for seven years in that location. So when I read that they should be in a bed away from the house, I decided to try it.
But the wind whips them around pretty good.
These pictures are not particularly good, but I’m trying to show several things. In this one is a bug with two orange stripes (type unknown) in the upper middle of the photo. Also, the orchid like shape of the flower petals is noticeable..
This shot illustrates the amount of flowers on the plant. As I’ve said before, this out-of-control bush needs to be cut back. I did some lopping last year but don’t really know the correct way to trim it.
Sunny days and flowers bring the promise of spring. Then there are the days where winter bears down again.
