The only flowers I had outside were pansies in a big pot by the front door. I always buy pansies as soon as they are available, the only thing you can put out so soon. Last night I took them inside. I knew that the plant wouldn't be killed, but the flowers would have been as frozen as these daffodils.
I tried to take my usual 7AM walk and was bundled up in my mid-winter gear for the frigid weather but I got as far as the corner of my street and turned back because of the black ice. I didn't want to take a spill.
I well remember my first Easter in Connecticut on April 6, 1969. We had a surprise storm with 12 inches of snow, so this little glitch in the weather shouldn't surprise us. Hopefully it will warm up for Easter this Sunday.
