This morning, we woke up to a blanket of snow. Actually some of our family members saw it in the middle of the night, as my husband took Chloé to the hospital yesterday evening to see if her finger was broken. She injured it in gym class while playing basketball. They didn't get back home until 2:00 a.m.! The good news is that her finger is not broken, just bruised. They both said they were a little surprised to emerge from the hospital and see snow!
I think my flowers were a little surprised to wake up with a snowy cover too. The dwarf irises above seem to be snuggling for warmth. All of the flowers in bloom right now are quite tiny and close to the ground. The larger, taller spring flowers will follow.
Part of me wanted to run out and put little sweaters and scarves on them all, but I know that they will be fine. Spring flowers are very hardy and are used to changeable temperatures. Good thing!
