It doesn't look like spring
Since we arrived back from our trip south we've had nothing but snarly weather. Think freezing rain, wind, sleet and hail, interspersed with clouds and an occasional tantalizing view of sunshine. It's spring in Victoria--but unusually cold. This morning after a hard frost last night all my sweet spring flowers have succumbed. I think the crocus is a gonner, but maybe the daffodils will recoup.
And probably the tulip leaves will be fine.
This is a harsh blow for Victorians. Usually we're blabbing on about flowers while the rest of the country is in the deep freeze. This year it's reversed. We're having freezing temperatures while Winnipeg has a heat wave.
