I feel terrible about what could
happen tonight in New England
which is a possiblity of snow.
Even here in Missouri it may 
drop very
close to a freeze.

I don't know what that might mean for
these wonderful stems of foxglove buds....
or these columbines I love:

Today I spent 2 hours cutting
back my forget me nots that were
already going to seed and then I
took these photos.

With the tulips gone - our garden
has slipped into a "purple" garden!

I am excited to see all the
peonies coming along next too.

I hope spring will be visiting 
you soon too
if it hasn't already come!

They should be fine, I hope, if it doesn't freeze. Flowers love to be in the cooler. I am a little worried about the potential for snow up here. It just doesn't feel right.

Hope your iris made it through the night. They look lovely. Here in northern Ohio it was 27 at dawn with snow already on the ground. Not sure what it
will mean for our apple trees in bloom. I so enjoy your flowers.
Happy Mother's Day to all moms everywhere.

I hope your garden survived, Here it only reached 34-35. Usually we're safe planting the garden after April 15, but not this year! But I do love the cooler weather as we know what is around the corner! Happy Mother's Day to you!

Aren't the transitions in the garden so fun to watch? Hoping you don't have a freeze.

Love taking a walk through your gorgeous garden of blooms. Your irises are stunning shades of purple. Our dwarf irises bloomed last week so had to cover them at night due to freezing temperatures, but they made it through for a lovely Mother's Day. And my girls brought a tea lunch which was delicious. Too cool to eat outside but it was a lovely day. Hope your day was special.
